On the occasion of the July 2017 apology and 10.5 million dollar payout by Canada’s Liberal government to Omar Khadr, the Global Research News Hour features a June 2015 talk by Khadr’s lawyer Denns Edney in Winnipewg, Manitoba, Canada.

Omar Khadr is a Canadian citizen captured during a firefight in Afghanistan while still a minor and detained for a decade at the infamous Guantanamo Bay facility, where he was tortured. On May 23, 2008, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled unanimously that the government had acted illegally, contravening section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Yet in spite of this on the record judgement, 71% of the Canadian population in a subsequent poll expressed disapproval of the payout.

We present this repeat broadcast (which originally aired on July 1st of 2016) to provide some context for the Canadian government’s decision.
