Liberal government pays terrorist $10.5 million

Pigeon Lake resident says terrorist who killed American soldier doesn’t deserve apology or payout

Dear editor,

When I saw Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale announce that they would be awarding Omar Kadr with $10.5 million of our tax dollars, it made my blood boil.

My grandfather came to this country in 1919 from the USA and he worked hard and paid taxes, my father also worked very hard and he also paid his taxes, and I have been paying taxes for 60 years. It looks like we have paid these taxes so the Liberal government can buy votes.

Canadian hostages John Ridsdel and Robert Hall were executed by ISIS. Trudeau’s response: Canada does not negotiate with terrorists.

Omar Kadr throws a grenade that kills American medic Sgt. Christopher Speer. Trudeau’s response: The government apologizes and gives him $10.5 million.

Goodale says that the Supreme Court found that the government violated his constitutional rights and they owed him an apology. The Supreme Court did not say they should pay him and his scumbag lawyers $10.5 million. It seems to me that a terrorist should not be entitled to any constitutional rights.

I watched an interview with Omar Kadr and I did not hear any remorse or any apology from him. All he was concerned about was that he was having a hard time getting a job because no one trusted him. I wonder why. Now he won’t have to worry about finding a job. If he really wants people to trust him he should give his settlement to the widow of Christopher Speer.
