Omar Khadr: The Law
Featuring Attorney Samuel Morison, US Department of Defence
Tuesday, November 12 (7:00 – 9:00 pm)
The Atrium, King’s University College
(9125 – 50 Street)
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.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn more about Omar Khadr, who has been an inmate at the Edmonton Institution since May of this year.
Samuel Morison has practiced law for more than 20 years and is a nationally recognized expert on federal executive clemency and the restoration of civil rights. He will speak about Omar Khadr’s appeal before the US Federal Court.
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.
Omar Khadr: The Law is the second of two events in Edmonton focused on Omar Khadr. You can watch the presentation by Brigadier General (ret) Stephen Xenakis, MD of Omar Khadr: The Man here:
