Ezra Levant: The Canadian Bar Association's Khadr fetish

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

Ezra is an acquaintence of mine, and it is nice to see Ezra not giving up and calling it like it is.

Many times I have called out these Lefty Bleeding Hearts Judges and Lawyers in British Columbia and their Cause Celebre for a healthy payday and National Publicity in my many Op.Ed pieces on Now Public, Ezra is BANG ON when he takes on Lefty Judges and "Whats in it for me Lawyers"  on the East Coast, providing even more insight on the inner workings of Lefty Non Justice.  Hopefully people will wake up and see Ezra's Excellent coverage for what it is.

Ezra Levant: The Canadian Bar Association's Khadr fetish
Posted: August 19, 2009, 9:45 AM by NP Editor Ezra Levant.

The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) has a crush on Omar Khadr. The left-leaning lawyers' club held its convention in Dublin last week, but even Ireland's charms couldn't get their minds off the accused terrorist, still detained in Barack Obama's prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The spark for the CBA's latest pronouncement on the matter was a decision of the Federal Court of Appeal, ordering the Canadian government to seek Khadr's repatriation (the government is considering an appeal). But the CBA doesn't need a reason to talk about their favourite cause. Khadr has been the subject of more CBA press releases than everyone else on the planet combined.

The CBA is obsessed. A search of its website yields 232 items about Khadr. What about other Canadians trapped overseas, such as Huseyn Celil, a Canadian citizen currently being held on trumped-up charges by China, or William Sampson, who was held and tortured in Saudi Arabia? They are non-persons to the CBA -- no press releases for them, and no mentions on its website.
