I would rather not focus on what other parties have done but what your party has done – as you are the party in power.

You did not respond to the issue of the human rights violation – is this deserved based on Omar Khadr’s actions as a minor?  It seems that is what you are saying based on your response. I am a member of your constituency and providing you with what I would like.  I expect the government to work to repatriate Omar Khadr – just as I would expect you would do that same for me.
The Supreme Court ruling still indicated that there have been human rights violation and that the Geneva convention has been violated.  We have also violated the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.  The Supreme court overturned the rulings because it was overstepping their bounds to direct the government to repatriate Omar Khadr, a step they have never taken before.  Also it isn’t like the ruling was backing or in support of the Government ““offends the most basic Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects.” – not exactly a ringing endorsement. This ruling does not absolve you or your party of responsibility.
Not to mention the cost incurred to keep Khadr inGuantanamo.

I have not stated that I do not wish for Khadr to be held accountable but he must be afforded his Canadian.

I would like a response to our human rights violations, Geneva convention violations and UN convention Rights of the Child violations.  I would also like to ensure that you are taking my opinion and view as a constituency of your riding as *you* represent *me* as my MP.

Best regards

Hi Pierre,

I have tried calling your constituency office who indicated that perhaps I had the wrong e-mail address.  As I have already had a response this solution seems unlikely.  I have cc’d the secondary e-mail address which is located on the government site.

Again – I am still awaiting a response to this.  I am free to discuss at any time –  I do think that this turn around time for response is unacceptable.

What are the conservatives going to do with regard to Omar Khadr moving forward?
What are the conservatives going to do in the future to ensure we meet the Geneva convention and the UN convention on the rights of the child guidelines?

What is our response to the violations already committed??
