Gettin' Angrier By The Day

I wasn't going to do a blog post on this.

I won't even use the son-of-a-b's name...but here's the story.

So is the terrorist criminal the s-o-b?  or Justin Trudeau?
I won't answer that.

Sure...sure, the Supreme Court has interpreted the Charter of Rights and that led to the ruling.
But the Supreme Court sure as hell didn't make Trudeau give the terrorist criminal $10.5 million.

Everyone I've talked to...and the topic is often discussed at the bar and on the outraged.
I actually hope that outrage isn't going away.
It should increase!

A write-in campaign to Federal MP Mel Arnold (C) led to Mr. Arnold's reply, received today and reprinted here in its entirety.

"Dear constituent,

Thank you for your email regarding compensation paid to Omar Khadr.

On Wednesday, July 5th, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government confirmed that it paid millions in compensation to Omar Khadr. The Liberal Government has also apologized to Khadr. 

Conservatives believe that it is one thing to acknowledge alleged mistreatments. It is another to secretly award a convicted terrorist who murdered a U.S. soldier. This was Justin Trudeau’s choice and he is responsible for the decision. 

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said he believes the Harper government's decision to repatriate Khadr in 2012 was a sufficient response to the Supreme Court's ruling that Khadr's rights were violated.

Scheer said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is trying to shirk responsibility for the actions of previous Liberal governments by placing the blame on Mr. Harper. This whole ordeal started under the Liberal governments of Prime Ministers Chretien and Martin. Canadian officials from Foreign Affairs and CSIS questioned Khadr at Guantanamo Bay in 2003 and 2004, when former Prime Minister Paul Martin was in power.

Canadians know Prime Minister Trudeau’s decision is wrong. The Supreme Court of Canada did not instruct Justin Trudeau to give one cent to Omar Khadr. Repatriation was the proper remedy to the Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling and that’s why Conservatives brought Mr. Khadr back to Canada.

It is also troubling that this payout was announced during the summer recess of Parliament when there is limited opportunity to question the Prime Minister and his government on the decision.  Regardless, our Conservative Party will continue to press for debate on and explanations of this affair.
Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the Liberal government's decision to strike a deal with Khadr is theirs, and theirs alone, and the decision is simply wrong.  The Trudeau  government was wrong to make a “secret deal” with Omar Khadr and then  try to blame the previous Harper government for it.

What is most upsetting to Canadians is that when a Canadian soldier is killed or injured in battle the government provides a lump sum payment up to a maximum of $360,000. Despite this, the current government is willing to provide millions to a convicted terrorist who actively sought to kill Canadian and allied soldiers.

Our thoughts continue to be with Christopher Speer’s widow and family, who must relive their ordeal every time this issue comes up in the media.

Given Mr. Khadr’s admission of guilt, Conservatives are calling on him to give any settlement money to Sergeant Speer`s family.

Thank you for sharing your input with me and I hope you are able to share your input with others who may not be aware of the Liberal government’s perilous and unprecedented decision to award Khadr.

Please take a moment to review and sign these petitions if you feel they reflect your concerns:

Thanks again for being in touch!

Personally, I'm convinced that Justin Trudeau's actions in paying the terrorist criminal should bring down his Liberal government.
Right after throwing the Charter of Rights where it a lake.

So who's the s-o-b?
Take your pick...they're both the same in my eyes!
Now that's anger!
