OPINION: Khadr’s $10.5 million was a result of Canada’s breach of national and international laws — 2 Comments

  1. I take issue with the graphic on the tee shirt. I imagine that from an indigenous perspective the Canadian flag might be offensive to see flying over land which in most cases was stolen from your ancestors. You have probably been to Canada Day at the flats here in Sooke and listened while thanks is given to the Tsooke nation for sharing their land with us settler folk. Ive often wondered at hearing this what if they decided they no longer wished to share this place with us. I think the relationship at that point is revealed. Canadians do not own the land this land will be here long after canada is gone. We share this land with bears deer trees cougar eagles salmon we are members of a living community. Our membership in nature is primary to the historical and legal fiction that is Canada. Our true and lasting heritage is more of an obligation to nature and our participation in it than to the rule of law which is a fiction. Im not saying the law is not enforceable by violence which makes it real in our minds but without a healthy ecosystem we will be evicted by natural selection. Nature will pack our bags.
    Given our history here in canada the sentiment on the t-shirt expresses violence racism and human supremacism and that is repugnant to me and my idea of Canada. It is an unsustainable political attitude.
