Montreal’s mayor wants Ottawa to do more – to help an imprisoned Saudi man.

Raif Badawi was jailed for insulting Saudi clerics on his blog.

Mayor Denis Coderre has called on other cities – and Prime Minister Harper – to express support for Badawi, who was sentenced to 10 years and one-thousand lashes.

The blogger’s wife and children live in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Harper said earlier this month that since Badawi is not a Canadian citizen, it limits Canada’s influence in his case.
