OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) Federal Director Aaron Wudrick released the following statement in response to reports that the Trudeau government was preparing to offer Omar Khadr a $10 million compensation package:

“Mr. Khadr admitted to killing an American solider while fighting with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. The notion that Canadian taxpayers should be on the hook for paying such a person $10 million is highly offensive.

If the Trudeau government wishes to apologize for errors made in the past, that’s one thing, but handing $10 million in taxpayer money to Khadr is unacceptable.

If the federal government has an extra $10 million kicking around they should give it to the families of Canadian military veterans who were killed in Afghanistan by people who were fighting alongside Khadr.”

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has launched a petition opposing the financial payment to Khadr. It’s available HERE.
