Canada's First Conviction For War Crimes Today

"A killer who led a marauding gang of Hutu murderers and rapists in the Rwandan genocide became Canada's first convicted war criminal this morning. In a landmark decision, Désiré Munyaneza was convicted on two counts of genocide, two counts of crimes against humanity and three counts of war crimes for his part in the 1994 mass slaughter."
Globe & Mail

Now that Canada's war crimes laws have stood the test by bringing about a conviction in the Rwanda genocide, perhaps we may see a day when other individuals are asked to answer for their actions.

Even better, that means we have precedent should we need to try someone in Gitmo (provided the evidence isn't tainted by torture).

So, with this, bring Khadr home and if there is sufficient evidence, try him here.

Ya think the Cons with go for that?

No, neither do I...
