Omar Khadr: Government to seek emergency stay of bail

The federal government is planning to seek an emergency stay of an Alberta judge’s decision to grant former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr bail, the Canadian Press has learned.

The application, expected to be heard Tuesday before the province’s Court of Appeal, would come just hours before another court hearing scheduled to decide on his release conditions.

    A good release condition would be that his head be removed from his body.

    • The left would stuff it and carry on as if nothing happened;)

    Use the notwithstanding clause.

      Indeed and it boggles the mind why the CPC remain total chicken shits about using the clause. Lord knows Quebec uses it on a regular basis. That is the only valid anwer to all these judicial activists posing as judges and who think they trump Parliament.

    His lawyer: “The Harper government is not interested in the rule of law,” Dennis Edney, one of Khadr’s lawyers said in response.”

    Since the NP and CBC aren’t allowing comments, who is this tool? Appeals are very much part of the “rule of law”.

    Anyway, the article says that this convicted terrorist is going to live with his lawyer. I hope that the lawyer doesn’t experience what his client is capable of.
