Yann Martel endorses our Petition! – ‘Canada’s Obligation to Omar Khadr’


A sincere thank you to Yann Martel, internationally-renowned, best selling author and Man Booker Prize winner for ‘Life of Pi’, for endorsing our petition!

Mr. Martel actively supported Omar in the past with his English translation toPoem For Omar(Poème Pour Omar) written by a collective of Quebec writers and artists who expressed their outrage at the injustice Omar has suffered.

Yann Martel, so clearly states why the case of Omar Khadr has profound implications for all Canadians:

​Please sign the petition and remind the federal government of Canada’s moral and legal obligation to offer redress for the atrocious violations of Omar Khadr’s rights.
