This post will continue to be updated as information comes in – newest on top.
And here is a comment received at my site about this from someone who, like I, is an immigrant into Canada and wants to preserve the Canada we came to:
‘I was an immigrant to Canada and I proudly stood up at my citizenship ceremony and swore allegiance to Canada, I chose Canada for the freedoms and opportunities. I find it irrehensible for a person born in Canada who goes overseas to fight against Canada and Canadian values; this is tatamount to treason and Mr Khadr should face the full extent of the law; The entire khadr family gave up their right to be called Canadian.If Minister Toews is forced to accept Khadr, then He (Khadr) should be imprisoned for life on the crime of treason.
Keep up the good work and fight to keep Khadr out, even expand the campaign to the rest of his family.’

A report from the Edmonton Sun.
BlazingCatFur reports having returned from the event – and that the Toronto speakers were excellent. He even has one photo up.
