If The Federal Gov't Deprives One Canadian Of Their Fundamental Constitutional Rights - They Are Capable Of Denying Us All!


Every citizen should be aware that our Federal Conservative government is denying one Canadian their fundamental constitutional rights - for political purposes. Therefore, in fact, they are also capable of denying your rights and the rights of all others in this nation. Welcome to Canada ... 2010..

Ruling of the Supreme Court Of Canada:
"Canada actively participated in a process contrary to its international human rights obligations and contributed to Khadr’s ongoing detention so as to deprive him of his right to liberty and security of the person, guaranteed by s. 7 of the Charter, not in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
Though the process to which Khadr is subject has changed, his claim is based upon the same underlying series of events considered in Khadr 2008. As held in that case, the Charter applies to the participation of Canadian officials in a regime later found to be in violation of fundamental rights protected by international law. There is a sufficient connection between the government’s participation in the illegal process and the deprivation of K’s liberty and security of the person. While the U.S. is the primary source of the deprivation, it is reasonable to infer from the uncontradicted evidence before the Court that the statements taken by Canadian officials are contributing to K’s continued detention. The deprivation of Khadr’s right to liberty and security of the person is not in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice. The interrogation of a youth detained without access to counsel, to elicit statements about serious criminal charges while knowing that the youth had been subjected to sleep deprivation and while knowing that the fruits of the interrogations would be shared with the prosecutors, offends the most basic Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects." [...]

"CONCLUSION: Canada actively participated in a process contrary to Canada’s international human rights obligations and contributed to Mr. Khadr’s ongoing detention so as to deprive him of his right to liberty and security of the person guaranteed by s. 7 of the Charter, contrary to the principles of fundamental justice."
Ruling of the Supreme Court Of Canada
(in a unanimous 9 - 0 decision)
Jamuary 29. 2010

Absolutely! This isn't a partisan issue, every Canadian should be worried about this ruling.

Deprivation of rights ... a done deal. I hope this costs the government many tens of millions. It is the only way they'll learn.

And, of course, being bounced in the next election.

Why is the Supreme Court caving to the government? Why didn't it have the courage to make the government bring Omar Khadr home.

It's becoming quite frightening.

Harper's gotta go.
