Globe editorial nails Conservatives on appeal of Khadr repatriation to Supreme Court

"Disowning Canadians abroad." A vigorous opposition to Mr. Harper's choice:
It is weak legally and even weaker morally. There is no serious principle worth defending.
This is becoming almost a weekly kind of thing. The thorough rebuke of the government on the major issue of the day.

Is the Globe editorial board having buyer's remorse yet? Is the wind shifting? Might they go another way next time? This collection of editorials leads one to think that they just might. Fairly major issues they are repeatedly chastising the government on these days. They seemed to give Stephen Harper a major benefit of the doubt last time. It certainly appears that he's used all that up.

Glad to see the pattern at the Globe.
