Some hope for Omar Khadr

Proving Stephen Harper is an “a-hole”, Janice Tibbets reports,

A federal judge has ordered the Harper government to seek Canadian Omar Khadr’s repatriation to Canada.

“The ongoing refusal of Canada to request Mr. Khadr’s repatriation offends a principle of fundamental justice and violates Mr. Khadr’s rights under . . . the charter,” wrote Federal Court Justice James O’Reilly in a ruling released Thursday.

After being tortured and held in captivity for years, I’m hoping Omar Khadr will be set free on his return to Canada.

That is if our Prime Minister will get of his ass and stand up for a teenager being locked up and tortured.

I would smile now, witnessing a judge shame Stephen Harper so publicly and so badly – but Khadr is still in jail, and his government continues to sit on its ass.
