Canadian Public Safety Minster Vic Toews shrugs off call for probe into Omar Khadr leak...

OTTAWA—The Conservative government distanced itself Monday from the leak of a classified videotaped interview with Guantanamo prisoner Omar Khadr that angered the U.S. administration and dodged calls for a probe into its source.

The Star reported Friday officials in the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama were furious about what they view as a serious “breach of trust.”

NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar told the Commons Monday it is “no laughing matter when our closest ally is privately questioning whether Canada can be trusted to keep secrets.”
