Canada (Prime Minister) v. Khadr

The BCCLA appeared at the Supreme Court of Canada to argue that the Government of Canada must take steps to seek the repatriation of child soldier and Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr. The Supreme Court ruled that Canada had violated Mr. Khadr’s Charter rights and that seeking repatriation could be an effective remedy. The court stopped short of upholding the Court of Appeal’s orders to seek immediate repatriation, but found that the Charter breaches should be remedied.
