Omar Khadr has returned to Canada. Now what?

Omar Khadr has returned to Canada.

He arrived at CFB Trenton on a US Military aircraft and was turned over to Corrections Canada and taken to Millhaven prison.

Now what?

My personal opinion is that now he has claimed his right as a Canadian citizen to return to his country after serving his sentence, that he must now accept his obligations as a citizen of Canada and face Canadian law.

Specifically: Section 46-1 b,c of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Every one commits high treason who, in Canada,

  • (b) levies war against Canada or does any act preparatory thereto; or
  • (c) assists an enemy at war with Canada, or any armed forces against whom Canadian Forces are engaged in hostilities, whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are.

If Omar Khadr's crime(s) are not a text book example of treason, what would be?

Two problems here. There was no official declaration of war and, if there were, Canada would be in violation of it's own laws AND The Geneva Convention. Not the sort of legal minefield you want to stroll leisurely through.

Are you just pretending you can't read or is it more of a chronic condition?

"or any armed forces against whom Canadian Forces are engaged in hostilities, whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are."

Now what? well ask CBC and the opposition parties, they were the ones who asked the minority cpc gov to return Omar to Canada.
This request went on and on in the HOC.
In fact, Dion's first question was "when are you going bring home Omar Khadr? the ndp and the Bloc asked the same question.

One can't desire to be a'soldier',child or otherwise, for a force engaged in combat with Canadian forces,and then claim that your soldierly actions were not treason.

It cannot be both ways and we all know that every lefty in the country uses the 'he was a child SOLDIER' line.

Well, he was a child soldier. Period.

What now? Levant has a stroke, Conservative hystrionics peak and ease off.

Has Harper lost his mind? He's selling the oilsands to the chinese and now is bringing a terrorist into the country. I will never vote for Haroper again he talked a god game but has governed exactly opposite of what he said he would do.

So some think that by repeating a lie often enough it becomes truth. Kadhr was not a child soldier under any accepted definition, nor was he as a terrorist protected by the Geneva Convention.

Kadhr only became a poster boy after the CPC formed the government. He and his "plight" were ignored by the same group that suddenly became so concerned about him.

If he is released, which is highly likely knowing the track record of the CSC and National Parole Board, he will continue his vocation of terrorism.

Now what? Now he gets released on to our streets and sues our government for millions of dollars. That's what.

"released on to our streets and sues our government for millions of dollars."

Of course because you know damned well some scumbag lawyer, (like there are ANY NON-scumbag lawyers) has already contacted him assurring him and his low life mother how much they can wring out of the government.

And some pond slime judge, (again, like there are any other kind) will be tripping over their own feet in their haste to proclaim Khadr an "victim" and dictate a huge settlement.

Any further crimes that can be traced to this piece of garbage can be laid right at the feet of Canada's lawyers and judges.

The blood is on your hands you fucking pukes.

Psychotoxic the asswipe Liberal sounds off with his usual clueless garbage.

Jen said...

Not to worry folks, the likes of the CBC, the liberals, ndp, and the bloc who all chanted for Khadr to come back will be looked after by them. Khadr will find employment within CBC or, with either parties that wailed for him.

Evan Solomon might do a personal interview with Khadr and why not-he is their friend.

Treason or not I'm sue the government would rather have this issue go away.

Presumably the government is covertly watching the actions of this family and justice will land on them should they pursue terrorist activities - no different from anyone else you would hope.
