Omar Khadr

July 17, 2017

So episode 59 – 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.

Before we jump into the heavy stuff lets look at something fun.

Brendan Richmond’s Canadian comedy song “Out For a Rip” went viral in 2013 raking up over 12 million views, but this Canada Day he was shocked to find his trademarked catchphrase on the lable of a Coca-Cola bottle.

So he lawyered up and released a followup song, titled “Out for a Sip” which doubles as the best legal demand rap video ever made.

Then onto the heavy stuff.

There has been so much misinformation surrounding the Canadian Government’s settlement with Omar Khadr.  We break it down to separate the truth from the spin.  Does the Charter apply outside Canada? Was Khadr tortured? What exactly did the Supreme Court find in 2008 and 2010? And is 10.5 million dollars appropriate compensation?

Time to fact check what the politicians and political pundits are saying.

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.
