On February 11, 2009, lawyers for Omar Khadr presented a plan to return the Guantanamo Bay detainee to Canadian society. The outline, laid out at a news conference in Toronto, called for assessments of the 22-year-old's health and education, and proposed he be housed in a foster home. Dennis Edney, one of Khadr's lawyers, called on Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to press for a repatriation plan when he met US President Barack Obama. The plan was ultimately rejected, and Khadr is currently being tried by a military commission.
