supreme court makes it official: omar khadr's rights are being violated every single day

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that the constitutional rights of Canadian citizen Omar Khadr have been violated, and continue to be violated every day that he is imprisoned in the US concentration camp in Guantanamo Bay.

Although the Supreme Court said it has no jurisdiction to order the Harper Government to repatriate Khadr, there is now even more unambiguous and powerful evidence that the Harper Government violates the human rights of Canadian citizens, specifically those who are brown and/or Muslim.
