  1. I am proud to be Canadian I think the Goverment did the right thing Omar deserve the apologize. What the Harper government did to him was very bad. He violate his right allow the US government to torture him. He was a child and they do to him was inhuman i hope that the right wing people could understand that.


  2. The government was right to apologize and compensate Omar Khadr. Stay strong Omar, the storm of controversy will pass eventually. And know that many people support you and wish you well.
