Erin O’Toole on Omar Khadr
So episode 60 – a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.
First thing first. Go back and listed to episode 59 for your Omar Khadr primer.
Conservative member of parliament Erin O’Toole was one person who listened and he had some stuff to say about the episode. So we invited him on the podcast to discuss it.
O’Toole has been one of the Conservatives’ lead critics of Justin Trudeau’s 10.5 million dollar settlement with the polarizing Khadr. O’Toole is also a fellow Dalhousie law school grad and a pretty smart guy. So we jump into the legal weeds on this one and break out some Latin maxims and Supreme Court of Canada case law.
Interesting debates are never easy. So put on your thinking caps and buckle up.
We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
