Assange has been a political prisoner for most of a decade and he still is one today, not a criminal hacker.
Preston Manning is a joke.
Karl Rove is a war criminal.
When someone is correct multiple times about major events, it’s worth hearing what they have to say about the latest unfolding.
Trump’s Presidency is crumbling, and if Americans wake up, it won’t last long into next year.
The Conservative Party of Canada, in response to Omar Khadr being awarded a damages settlement for torturous conditions of his imprisonment, said, “No words,” on their Facebook post.
I’ve some words. A political party that was okay with leaving a child soldier to be tortured in an American prison, ought to have at least one word to say too, and that’s “sorry”.
What Omar K. was convicted for was wrong I think, but what the Canadian Liberal and Conservative governments did to him during his punishment, for being a child soldier, requires punishment for the government, for the people of Canada to allow an injustice to persist. This payout should give pause to Canadians who think there’s no repercussion for torturing a Canadian child who people hate.
: Omar said for years that he didn’t throw the grenade and only relented to the states narrative so that he could be moved to a Canadian prison. He suffered torture and was denied a childhood both by his father and later by the US. That is why he both deserves an apology and compensation. [You’re] right a Liberal government and a Conservative government both failed to protect the rights of a Canadian child under the Convention on the Rights of the Child as well as the conventions related to child soldiers both of which Canada had championed.
I’m all for people fighting injustice. Conservatives and others see the injustice in a person who has [allegedly] killed someone getting more money from the government, than the victim’s family gets. I see that as an injustice. We shouldn’t fight the unjust amount going to a victim’s family, by denying the correction of another injustice, however.
Dear Minister Goodale:
Please help refugees stranded by the illegal and immoral Republican ban on Muslim people going to the United States. You could grant access to Canada for any family that had already been granted an American Visa which was subsequently cancelled yesterday by the Republicans. This is an international humanitarian crisis, and I want Canada to be a leader in the rescue. Perhaps Air Canada could also assist with this important task.
