Earnest said the White House is calling for pardons or sentence commutations for the three journalists and for clemency in all politically motivated Air Max Shoes Basketball sentences.
"Canada is very disappointed with the verdict in the case of Mohamed Fahmy and is concerned that the judicial process that led to his verdict is inconsistent with Egypt's democratic aspirations," said the statement.

He also sent a tweet Monday morning that pointed the finger at Ottawa. "(at)pmharper I hold you responsible for leaving my brother to rotten in Egyptian prison. Was a call or a public statement that difficult?" He confirmed on CBC radio that the tweet was his.
The verdicts came after a five month trial that Amnesty International described as a "sham," calling Monday's rulings "a dark day for media freedom in Egypt."
was quickly denounced as a blow to freedom of expression.
Canadian Ambassador David Drake, who attended the session, said he was disappointed at the verdict.
Fahmy's brother said they would appeal the verdict but added that he had little faith in the system. "Everything is corrupt," he said.

"They just ruined a family," said Fahmy's brother Adel, who was attending the session. His mother and fiancee broke down in tears. "Who did he kill" to get this sentence? Fahmy's mother, Wafa Bassiouni shouted.
Australia, Britain and the United States strongly condemned the sentencing of Egyptian Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy, Australian correspondent Peter Greste and Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed, with the White House calling for pardons or sentence commutations for the three journalists.
Fahmy, who was Al Jazeera English's acting Cairo bureau chief, was visibly shaken after the verdict.
Ottawa reacted several hours after the verdicts were announced in a Cairo courtroom, with a junior minister responsible for consular affairs saying the government was "very disappointed" with the outcome of the trial.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the journalist prosecutions were all the more disturbing because they come after a succession of prosecutions that are "incompatible with the basic precepts of human rights and democratic governance."
"Call the Egyptian president. call the Egyptian ambassador in Canada, like Britain did today," he said.
