Stephen Harper wants to stand up for Canada. So does Paul Martin. Jack Layton wants to protect those he calls working families. Yet in a very specific situation where the Canadian government has been asked to protect a Canadian citizen, the leaders have nothing to say. The case is that of 19-year-old Omar Khadr, a Canadian currently confined at the U.S. Guantánamo Bay prison camp. A lot of Canadians think he doesn't deserve the Canadian citizenship he was born with. Which may be true. However, he has it. He is Canadian. And there are not two classes of citizen in this country.
