The CBC fifth estate's feature-lengthy interview with Mohamed Fahmy last night has increased sympathy across the country for the Canadian journalist who's out on bail in Egypt.

Fahmy, one of the Al Jazeera Three, was jailed for more than 400 days after being convicted to helping the banned Muslim Brotherhood while working for the Qatari government-owned news network.

He's maintained his innocence, yet faces a new trial next week that could result in a lengthy jail term.
