Shorter Supreme Court

Sure Khadr's rights have been violated, but our hands are tied. It's not like we are the Supreme Court. Note to self, the Charter of Rights isn't worth the paper it is written on.

  1. Just don't go fight for the other side in Af'stan against a NATO ally, and you'll be fine.

  2. A citizen deserves his rights under the charter regardless of the bad choices his parents made for him.

  3. Whether you like it or not Ben, the Canadian constitution doesn't care if you "fight" against a NATO ally (which is still an alleged crime) your rights are still your rights. Well, that is until today.

    Anyone who goes agrees or applauds the Supreme Court of acknowledging the abuses of Khadr's rights as a Canadian and does NOT disagree with their decision to do nothing about it, is an idiot at best and a fascist at worst.

    When the Supreme Court is derilict in their responsibilities to uphold the constitution, we no longer can consider the judiciary a legitimate branch of the government.

  4. I've consistently been in the "let him rot" camp for years. Don't want the Canadian government to mistreat him, should he end up on Canadian soil again, but I'm quite happy with our diplomats not lifting a finger to get him there.
