Multi Million dollar payout to Omar Khadr

Multi Million dollar payout to Omar Khadr

This honestly just seems like a bad joke.

It really just baffles my mind, that they want to pay millions of dollars to Omar Khadr. This is flat out ridiculous.

Well to be fair, he WAS tortured by Americans in Guantanamo...

But that's really not my concern for various reasons and shouldn't mean WE pay him that money.

This is unbelievable. I have no words for this. This government with its broken promises and now paying a guy who fought against the NATO alliance and who killed a US soldier, gets a 10.5 million pay out. Pay out for what? What about the soldiers family. They should get that money. Shame Liberals Shame.

If he would have been given a fair trial in the first place it would have never gotten this far.
Not to mention no one would have ever heard his name mentioned on the news, and no payout would have happened.
So you can't balame him or Justin.

If I was going to blame anyone it would be our former PM for just ignoring the situation as it was developing.

I can and do blame anyone and everyone involved in the decision to give him money. Whoever has decided this, should be ashamed.

Why wouldn't you ignore it? He's a terrorist that pled guilty to war crimes.

As a Canadian, we shouldn't be in the business of even entertaining garbage like this. We didn't make him join ISIS. We didn't make him do terrible things. We didn't send him to Guantanamo. We didn't torture him. We didn't make him plead guilty.

Yet we get to give him $10 million of our taxpayer money? Sounds legit

I have never been more disgusted by our Govt. and legal system. He has admitted to murdering a soldier and we are rewarding him. That will send a message to our allies of what Canada truly represents.
Sickening.

Ignoring what situation? He killed an army medic trying to save his life. What would you expect if Khadr had killed a Canadian medic trying to save his life? A ticker tape parade down Burrard?

Of course. To think they didn't do that to captured terrorists during that time frame is naive. The level of torture is debatable, but I am sure it happened.

The outrage at this is only rivalled by the outrage generated this last weekend by the skydiving plane.

Seriously, though, Trudeau settled this issue before it ran through the court process. The feds, thanks in part to Steverino's actions, would have lost the lawsuit so badly that $10 million should be considered cutting the feds' losses.

Trudeau probably settled it early sans courts to avoid a full examination of how the secret services all work in conjunction with each other, cross borders.

And to hide Canadian secrets and keep them out of the court records? Priceless.
Please edit "Horgan" to "Premier Horgan" to show solidarity towards a successful tenure. Remember: The NDP Government: 2017 thread is not in the Bickering Room.
