Mohamed Fahmy, a former Al-Jazeera journalist who was released from prison in Egypt last month, has returned home to Canada with the hope of starting an election debate on how the Canadian government can better protects its citizens abroad.


Fahmy told The Associated Press that he arrived in Toronto quietly with his wife on Sunday. He said he had long imagined in prison the moment he would return.


His arrival ends a nearly two-year ordeal that raised questions about Egypt’s commitment to free speech and whether Canada’s Conservative government did enough to help him.
