U of T's Audrey Macklin on Omar Khadr, the Magna Carta and Bill C-51


From Audrey Maclin's Globe and Mail article:

"The facts that seem to matter to the government are those that can tether the demonization of Mr. Khadr to the advancement of electoral goals, whether it is the passage of Bill C-51, or its “tough on crime” agenda. This may explain why the government was able to announce its intention to appeal Justice Ross’s decision so fast that one wonders if Department of Justice lawyers had time to read, study and analyze it to determine whether there is a sound legal basis for appeal."
