In a rare show of tactical bipartisanship, the three opposition parties combined to ask four consecutive questions this afternoon on the matter of Omar Khadr. If the opposition persists on this front, it’ll be maybe another week before Irwin Cotler charges across the aisle and strangles Lawrence Cannon.

While reading his prepared lines—amazing that the Conservatives still want to be heard maintaining that Mr. Khadr has been treated “humanely”—the new Foreign Affairs Minister did manage to vow that “the Government of Canada does not want to interfere in the judicial sovereignty of another nation.”

This will surely come as some surprise to Saudi Arabia and the two young Canadians it is currently planning to behead.
