(116 St, just north of 91 Ave, U of A Campus)
Although Mr. Harper and the Canadian government have chosen to demonize Omar Khadr, there are significant faces from the U.S Military and Canadian public who have actually met and spent time with Mr. Khadr and find that he is a compassionate human being who poses no threat to anyone.
Brigadier General (ret) Stephen Xenakis, MD is a psychiatrist who has spent hundreds of hours with Omar Khadr over the past five years.
Come out and join the discussion about his experiences with Omar in Guantanamo Bay and raise your own questions and concerns.
Refreshments will be provided.
Organized by the University of Alberta’s Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life and the Micah Centre at The King’s University College.
