Majority of Canadians oppose Omar Khadr's bail conditions

In a poll of 1,508 Canadians for our client The Rebel we found that a majority opposed all of the relaxed bail conditions on Omar Khadr.

After Khadr was returned to Canada from Guantanamo Bay his lawyer successfully argued to have his bail conditions relaxed. Our survey looked into what Canadians thought of these new conditions:

  • On removing the tracking bracelet on Khadr’s ankle, 67% of Canadians disagree, 45% strongly.
  • On removing the police software on his computer to allow them to monitor what he’s doing, 71% of Canadians disagree, 49% of them strongly.
  • 60% of Canadians oppose his right to fly on jets .
