What does his controversial case teach us about human rights in Canada today?
This will be a two hour event comprised of a short “primer” on the history of the Omar Khadr case followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session with the audience.
The stated mission of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is to offer a “journey of education and inspiration”. A study of the past must inspire critical examination of current policies and behaviours if we are to build a better future. The case of Omar Khadr calls out for just such a critical examination and this panel hopes to contribute to that.
Join our panelists as they explore this issue. Your questions will be welcome.
Dennis Edney, QC Mr. Edney has represented Omar Khadr on a pro bono basis for most of the past decade and is an expert on the Khadr case and also on human rights law in Canada. Edney has received numerous human rights awards for his work.
Michael DeMoor Dr. DeMoor is a Professor of Social and Political Philosophy at the King’s University in Edmonton and has followed the Khadr case for several years with a par-ticular interest in the political challenges it presents
David Goa Mr. Goa is Director of the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life at the University of Alberta. His academic work explores religious tradition and modern culture and the Ronning Centre has hosted several public lectures dealing with the Khadr case.

COMMUNITY EVENT Come and learn about the Local Immigration Partnership planned for Winnipeg and how you can contribute to making our city a welcoming and inclusive place for newcomers.
Monday, September 22nd, 3:00 - 5:00 pm IMMIGRANT CENTRE, 100 Adelaide Street
