Dennis Edney, one of the Canadian lawyers who has represented Omar Khadr for many years, spoke with passion Thursday after Khadr won bail following 13 years in prison.
“Mr. Harper is a bigot. Mr. Harper doesn’t like Muslims,” he said in response to the federal government’s long fight to keep the 28-year-old Khadr incarcerated.
“When you put your children to bed, ask yourself if you’d want your children to be abused the way Omar Khadr was,” Edney said in comments directed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
