Meantime, two Members of Parliament have shown enough courage to speak out against Emery's extraordinary rendition and imminent threat to Canad's sovereignty. From the Straight.com:
Libby Davies (Vancouver East):Canada has extradition treaties with 50 countries.
“It’s about Canadian sovereignty. Why would we cart off a Canadian to serve time in America for something he wouldn’t have been charged with in Canada? Now what we’re left with is trying to press that he at least be allowed to serve his time in Canada."
Ujjal Dosanjh (Vancouver South):
"Emery faces a [massive, profoundly] disproportionate sentence that he wouldn’t have received in Canada. I believe in that case we as a country should ensure that he’s at least able to serve his sentence in a Canadian prison. He’s not a dangerous offender."
