For sure. Better to spend that money in our court system to protect the values Canadians have fought and died for, than to claim a "savings" of $20 million and promptly hand it over to the Clintons.

:135: Canadians fought and died so that Canadian citizens could have their rights violated by our government, be branded as a war criminal as a child in a combat zone and be tortured by another country's military force ? That isn't why I served.

It looks like several here served for the right to completely misrepresent events as they occurred with Omar Khadr such that they can try and spin on internet boards an insanely stupid decision to pay out a murdering terrorist $10.5 million of taxpayer cash. That's what it looks like to me.

The Conservative Clowns in power, both violated, and allowed another country to violate, the basic "human rights" of a Canadian Citizen! I say Conservative Clowns because they couldn't even learn from the Maher Arar lawsuit, which, by the way our government reached a $10 Million dollar settlement with back in 2007.

Good thing Canadians, and British Columbians, have decided to move our country, and province, away from incompetence by booting the Cons, and their idiot ideological thinking, to the curb!

Actually, it was the Liberal Clowns in power under Chretien and Martin, but don't let the truth stand in the way of your blind insidious hatred. I realize that you are seething to somehow deflect from the stupidity of Justin and his gang of Air-heads, but it was Justin's crooked Uncle Jean that started this whole Khadr mess. The Liberals are gone in 2019, and Omar Khadr is the main reason. There are many other horribly stupid decisions made by Justin but this one is unforgiveable. Shame Justin. Shame on you.

Through your lens, perhaps. To non ideologues that live the Canadian ideal, different story.

Meh, your right wing cohorts have spun things quite spectacularly and I've pointed out several...many times throughout these type threads, being "right" is subjective. Perhaps that may be too cerebral for the many, I don't know. What I do think certainly, this right wing line of thinking isn't far off from, gasp, "terrorism". Because anybody that doesn't have billions dollar "defence budgets" and wage war with what they have...wait for it, are terrorists. SM Effing H

String me up.

Though I speak out for the right to say such self absorbed drivel, it truly leaves ashes in my mouth.

Actually, I don't see anyone who agrees with paying a murdering terrorist as "living the Canadian ideal". You may be living the "North Korean ideal", or the "Cuban ideal", or the "Venezuelan ideal", but not the Canadian ideal. In my Canada, terrorist traitors who leave the country to fight against Canadian soldiers for the right to enslave women and stone people to death in stadiums don't get paid $10.5 million. But I can see that anyone who supports this payment would have ashes in their mouth, and ashes in their heads.

Yup, that's what it looks like to me too :smt045

In my Canada, children abducted by their fathers and taken to war zones to be brainwashed into becoming children soldiers are held culpable for the acts adult soldiers are expected to commit. People get killed in combat zones, but in my Canada, even if the enemy combatant is a child, we capture them and turn them over to the Americans to be tortured
