Rehabilitated? Time will tell. I have my doubts.

As do I.  But given his "red" celebrity status, it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Liberals didn't trot him out as a shining pre-election example of how they stood up for the "Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian" slogan used to counter Harper in 2015.

Right next to Joshua Boyle.

We should all show up at the next interview and throw sandals in his general direction. Just being culturally sensitive and all that.

Khadr is appealing his war crimes conviction: https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/u-s-military-court-appoints-panel-to-hear-omar-khadr-s-war-crimes-appeal-1.4610196

"In October 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty to five purported war crimes before a widely maligned U.S. military commission and was sentenced to eight more years in prison. He later said he pleaded guilty as his only way out of Guantanamo Bay.
Khadr's appeal argument -- with some support from U.S. courts -- is that the commission convicted him of offences that weren't crimes at the time he allegedly committed them. However, the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review that sits as a first appeal forum for commission verdicts has steadfastly refused to hear his case.
That precludes Khadr, who turned 33 last week, from taking his fight to a civilian appellate court where normal rules of evidence apply."



Are Canadian taxpayers are funding these legal proceedings?

Doesn't matter either way; taxpayers pay for it directly or indirectly through the millions the Canadian gov't awarded him because of various "abuses" he suffered at the hands of Canadian officials.

Oh FFS Romeo Dallaire et al, I assume that Dalhousie won't be giving equal time to a presentation on 'Dead US soldiers' rights'  ::)

Event Details

The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative, in partnership with Dalhousie University’s Open Dialogue series, is hosting an exclusive event with keynote speakers Omar Khadr and Ishmael Beah.

“To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when you're all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary.”

U.S. Court:  No appeal for YOU!
Quote
An American civilian court has refused to order a military court to decide an appeal from former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr.

In a brief decision this week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied Khadr’s request to force the issue.

“At this time, (Khadr) has not demonstrated a ‘clear and indisputable right’ to the extraordinary remedy,” the court said ...

Anyone see this on the Cdn National News? The complete clip?

One of the three medals he is wearing is a Sacrifice Medal which means he was wounded by hostile action(info for non military readers).

An “insult to the Waffen SS” is all most people heard. New headline:  Racist White Canadian Veteran Praises Nazi SS and Hitler Youth in Child Soldier rant.
