Dear <Member of Parliament>
In a recent letter to you, the Free Omar Khadr Now Campaign has asked all Members of Parliament and Senators to tell the public where they stand regarding the ongoing injustices inflicted upon Omar Khadr. After almost 12 years since his capture in 2002, both political and legal history have been in the making.
“Some cases enshrine the defining moments of their time. Omar Khadr’s is one. Future generations will rightly judge our shocking dereliction of responsibility in this matter [and] our collective Canadian failure to extend justice and humanity.” – Constance Backhouse, Distinguished University Professor of Law, University of Ottawa.
As a concerned Canadian citizen who believes in the rule of law and cherishes our democratic institutions, I am asking you to respond by April 22, 2014 to the question asked in that recent letter. [ > MP letter sent to you by the Free Omar Khadr Now Campaign ]
“Do you agree the Canadian government should release Omar Khadr as soon as possible and provide him with the necessary transitional programs to allow for his full participation in Canadian society? Yes/ No/ Don’t know”
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
