5 - I - PART I - OVERVIEW AND STATEMENT OF FACTS A. Overview l. While many of the general legal principles articulated by both Amnesty International Canada ("Al") and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association ("CCLA") are unobjectionable, their application of these principles in this case confuses Canada's role in the international transfer of offenders and relies on two false premises. Consequently, their submissions provide little assistance to this Court. 2. By definition, the International 7i an~fer <?l Qffenders Act 1 ("JTOA") pertains to offenders who have been sentenced by a foreign entity. Upon an offender's transfer, the role o f the Correctional Service of Canada ("CSC") is to continue enforcement of the sentence in accordance with the laws of Canada. 2 The CSC cannot question the sentence imposcd. 3 The presumption of reduced moral blameworthiness of young offenders, relied on by both intervcners; 1 is a Canadian principle that would apply when a Canadian court is sentencing a young offender in Canada. ln the contex t of an international transter, the foreign entity has already determined the length of the sentence, based upon that state' s own assessment o f the moral blameworthiness of the offender. 3. Both interveners erroneously presume that Canada's obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (''UNCRC') and other international instruments with respect to children are relevant to the statutory interpretation questions before this Court. 5 State parties to the UNCRC have undertaken to extend rights to each "child.. within their jurisdiction. 6 The respondent was 26 years old when he was transferred. None of the steps taken by Canada with respect to the respondent's transfer occurred when he was a child. When a transfon-ed offender is under 18 years old, s. 20 of 1 International 7i ansfer of Offenders Act, SC 2004, c 2 1 I/TOA I. Book of Authorities of the...

6 - 2 - the!toa ensures placement in a youth custody facility for both youth an adult sentences. 7 Regardless, it is not necessary to engage on the extent to which Canada's international obligations, beyond the specific treaties being implemented by the!toa, assist. Both interveners rely on the UNCRC to support their submissions that ss. 18 and 20 of the!toa must be interpreted to best achieve the goals of rehabilitation and reintegration. These goals are explicit objectives of the!toa. 8 Reference to external materials is superfluous. 4. Both interveners also presume that a penitentiary placement is inherently more.. restrictive than placement in a provincial institution, 9 but there is no evidence on the record to support this presumption. Conversely, the evidence that is on record shows that, if the respondent had been placed in a provincial institution, he would have similarly been subject to a security level assessment, and initial placement in administrative segregation or a provincial maximum security facility would have been a real possibility. 10 Moreover, the evidence clearly shows that the programs available in a penitentiary setting better support the rehabilitation and reintegration of Canadian offenders serving longer sentences. 11 B. Additional Relevant Facts 5. In reply to paragraph 6 of the CCLA s Factum, the determination that the respondent would be placed in a federa l penitentiary upon transfer was evident from the Minister's decision to approve his transfer, from the letter to the respondent advising him how hi s foreign sentence would be administered in Canada, and from the absence of consent from any provincial authority. 6. The Minister's decision to approve the respondent's transfer demonstrates the manner in which the Minister considered Mr. Khadr's circumstances, including Mr. Khadr s rehabilitative needs "in order to ensure safe reintegration into Canada." The Minister approved the transfer because, inter a/ia, he was satisfied that the "Correctional Service of Canada.. could address the Minister's concerns "through appropriate programing 7 /TOA, s A AGC.

7 - 3 - during incarceration''. 12 The CSC is responsible for the care, custody, and rehabilitation of inmates serving penitentiary sentences Prior to his transfer, the Minister's delegate in the CSC, Ms. Lee Redpath, wrote to advise the respondent how his foreign sentence would be administered in Canada. In her letter, Ms. Redpath explained that "[s]tatutory release is designed to assist federal inmates in making the transition to law-abiding behavior upon their return into the community" and set out how statutory release is calculated when.. a Canadian offender transferred to Canada is detained in a peni tentiary". After reproducing the portion of s. 26 of the!toa that pertains to a Canadian offender detained in a penitentiary, Ms. Redpath informed the respondent that his statutory release would be calculated on this basis The fact that no consent from any province was sought prior to the respondent's transfer also reflected the placement decision. If a Canadian offender would be w1der provincial authority after a transfer, consent or that provincial authority is required. 15 If consent had been sought from Alberta, the evidence is that " [o]ffenders who have been sentenced for murder would not be approved fo r transfer unless a specific exception was approved by the centre director, in consultation wi th the branch executive director." 16 PART II-QUESTIONS IN ISSUE 9. The questions in issue are set out at paragraph 39 of Canada's factum. I 0. The CCLA's submissions regarding the content ot: and compliance with, the duty of procedural fairness rai se a new issue, contrary to this Court's order granting the CCLA leave to intervene. Thi s issue should not be considered. 12 Hill Affidavit, Exh ibit "C", AR, Vol 2, pp 204, Correc1ions and Co11c/i1io11al Release Act.

There is no evidence regarding the process in Ontario, the province to which the respondent was initially transferred.

8 - 4 - A. Reply to Amnesty International PART III - ARGUMENT 11. The JTOA is the statutory framework implementing treaties with 83 foreign entities. Without the!toa, and the treaties it implements, the repatriation of Canadian offenders serving sentences imposed by foreign states could not be achieved. 12. Canada agrees with Al that one of the objectives of the legislation is essentially humanitarian. In furtherance of the humanitarian objective, the provisions of the!toa directed towards children and "young persons" were explicitly enacted to faci litate their return to Canada. 17 In s. 18 of the!toa, Parliament made a deliberate decision to deem young persons who were 14 to 17 years old when they committed the offence and who received a sentence that is longer than the maximum Canadian youth sentence to be serving an adult sentence. This decision was made to faci litate transfers by increasing the likelihood of a foreign entity agreeing to the transfer. T his, in turn, is in the best interests of Canadian young offenders serving foreign sentences and seeking a transfer to Canada. 13. Ar s submissions provide little assistance to this Court. In applying the!toa to determine the placement of the offender, Canada is not making any assessment of the offender's moral blameworthiness. The sentence, and the moral blameworthiness of the offender, has already been determined by the sentencing state The actions of Canada with respect to the transfer of the respondent under the!toa were al l taken after the respondent was an adult. The UNCRC and related instruments cited by A l are consequently not relevant in this appeal. In any event, rehabilitation and societal reintegration are stated purposes of the!toa. In cases where a minor Canadian offender is transferred. the guarantee of placement in a youth custody facility of all minors to be detained is in conformity with these instruments. 17!TOA ss 3. 4(3) BA AGC.

9 Placement in a penitenti ary ts nol necessarily harsher or more restrictive that placement in a provincial correctional faci li ty. for adults. For offenders serving longer sentences, the rehabilitation obj ecti ve of the!toa is better served by placement m a peni tentiary, due to inadequate programming availabl e in provincial facilities Regarding A l" s submission at paragraphs 18 and 20, the CSC' s interpretation of the JTOA full y complies with Canada's treaty obligation to not aggravate the respondent's sentence. T he treaty requires that, "[n]o sentence of confinement shall be enforced by the Receiving State in such a way as to extend its duratio n beyond the date at which it would have terminated according to the sentence of the court of the Sending State." 20 On any interpretation of the!toa, the respondent's sentence expires on October 30, B. Reply to Canadian Civil Liberties Association 17. The CCLA 's submissions add very little that is different, so the argum ents above are equally responsive to the CCLA. The CCLA's submissions regarding the duty of proced ural fairness is diffe rent, but thi s is a new issue that this Court should not consider. Regardless. the procedure fo llowed was both exactly as required by /TOA and fair. PART IV - SUBMISSIONS CONCERNING COSTS 18. Canada is not seeking costs against the interveners. PARTY-ORDER SOUGHT 19. In addition to the order sought in Canada's factum, Canada requests that the CCLA not be pem1itted to make submissions regarding procedural fairness. Dated this day of May, 2015 Sharlene Telles-Langdon Of Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada 19 Supra note I I. The finding that the respondent is serving an adult sentence rather than a youth sentence docs result in a later statutory release date. An impact on his liberty only materializes if the respondent is not granted paro le before August 19, 2015 (the entitlement to re lease date if he is serving a youth sentence). 20 Trea~)' hetween Canada and the United States of America on the Execution of Penal Sentences, Can TS 1978 No 12, Art IV 3, BA AGC, Tab 40.
