He won't, it makes his base mad at Trudeau.
That's what I meant. It's like going to Maine. Starts getting chilly for camping once Sept hits & you can't go too early in the season like you can to some other places (VA, NC, TN). A lot of people don't mind cold weather camping, but I'm not one of them.Just perhaps not as warm.
Khadr's guilty plea bought his freedom, but at a heavy price. For that freedom Khadr traded, perhaps forever, the chance to clear his name and turn public scrutiny on those who abused him, who doctored records, who changed their stories.
As part of his plea deal, Khadr agreed to a statement of facts admitting to killing Sgt. Speer, and promised never to seek forensic review of the evidence which might one day prove his innocence. He also agreed to permit the U.S. government to destroy all evidence following sentencing.
Discussed the SCC with my dad in relation to the Khadr case. My Dad mention that the fur on the robes is ermine. He also said that robes are based on the British House of Lords' robes.Is that real fur or faux fur on the robes? I hope for faux fur, but I love Canada all the same! I just wish you had a longer summer for my vacations.
Omar Khadr spent much of his youth being abused in an unlawful penal colony. He could have come out of this harrowing experience a bitter and spiteful man, hateful of the country who supported his torturers, and vindictive towards the citizens who applauded that decision. Instead, Khadr has conducted himself with the utmost dignity. “My past,” he recently said, “I’m not excusing it. I’m not denying it. We all do things we wish we could change. All I can do right now is focus on the present and do my best to become a productive member of society, a good person, a good human being . . . I want to finish my nursing program. I want to work as a nurse somewhere it’s needed. I want to be able to use my languages and my ability as a nurse to relieve people from pain.”
After everything that’s happened to him, Khadr is prepared to accept the ills of his past. Perhaps Canada might do the same for its own recent history.
