A sincere thank you to Monia Mazigh for her endorsement of our petition.
In her article in the Huffington Post, she reminds us why it is so important for Canada to fulfill our obligation to Omar.
“Omar Khadr was stripped of his rights as a child, as a teenager and later as an adult. Today, he is trying hard to put his life back on track and get the education that was denied to him all these past years. As long as Omar Khadr file is still lingering, Canada won’t be able to hide its dark face and celebrate its record on the world scene. It is time for the Canadian government to act swiftly and let the sun shine on Omar Khadr’s life”.
