Idle No More: You got my thumbs up, I hope you get in on the press conferences too. It's a struggle to stay informed since I'm Canadian and have to search the internet to know what's really going on in my own country. I appreciate you as a citizen-reporter more than you know, thank you". Carol Young

Omar Khadr: Thank you for uploading this video and the one of Dr. Stephen Xenakis' presentation. A lot of new details I wasn't aware of and explanations..

I think I already knew quite a bit more than the average person who relies only on the inadequate coverage provided by our mainstream media (which has been really poor) and still found both presentations/videos extremely informative. It's quite sad that the average person who relies only on the mainstream media really has no clue just how outrageous, criminal and morally disgusting the Canadian government, the American military and government's (2 administrations) treatment of Omar Khadr has been for more than a decade and the unbelievable injustice he's suffered. The fact that he has been so demonized and dehumanized and continues to be allows all the cowards responsible to avoid being held accountable.

I wish there was more average people of conscience like me could do that would actually make a difference for Omar. Hopefully he will be able to get his life and freedom back soon and is given a chance to heal from what must have been and continues to be such a nightmare. And I really do hope the day comes when he receives some kind of apology, recognition and compensation and that those responsible for abandonning him (Canadian government) and those responsible for inflicting all of these things on him. are held responsible publicly. The whole thing is just unbelievable and so horrifying. Omar Khadr is a strong man, I don't think there are too many 15 year olds who would have come out alive after all of this...after over a decade of such a nightmare. 

I don't think I would have -M

Like living in a fast food world of information it seems important news stories are reported and consumed one day and mostly forgotten the next by Canadians! There are exceptions like my citizen news free service that employs social media YouTube of reporting news stories, the only news source in Canada that reported the killings of Oromo indigenous people in Ethiopia. 

This news story published last May continues to make headlines as top story from my YouTube channel while other news stories like the recent Palestine/ Israel conflict and the Truth and Reconciliation- Alberta National Event have all been mostly forgotten. This YouTube "Killings in Ethiopia outrage Edmonton Oromo community" with over 7000 views was early picked up and posted on BBC news-world website and other foreign news agencies around the world... 
Not one news agency in Canada reported this story. 
From the streets of Cairo and the Arab Spring, to Occupy Wall Street, from the busy political calendar to the aftermath of the tsunami in Japan, social media was not only sharing the news but driving it. Dan Rather
