Stephen Lewis, former Canadian ambassador to the U.S., and one of Canada’s most highly-regarded citizens, was one of earliest endorsers of our petition.
This isn’t the first time that Mr. Lewis has supported justice for Omar. In 2009, he joined 185 Canadian organizations and public figures in signing a letter to then Prime Minister Harper calling for Omar’s repatriation. As we know, Harper chose instead to abandon Omar to a corrupt military tribunal, another 3 years in Guantanamo followed by 3 years in the Canadian prison system.
Canada owes Omar a formal apology and redress for the shocking abuse and denial of fundamental justice he suffered.
Please sign and help distribute our petition.
