Letter: Settlement not in Canadians’ interest

Shame on you Mr. Fuhr, shame on your cabinet and Trudeau for capitulating in this gross charade

Dear Mr. Fuhr:

How very kind and liberal of you to give the terrorist family Khadr $10,500,000 of the Canadian taxpayer’s funds. This is a family that has been involved with al Qaeda and the Afghan terrorists bent on overtaking Afghanistan and making it a Sharia law nation while trampling on the basic human rights of millions in the process. They also have ties to Palestinian terror groups through his mother, a proud supporter of terrorism, all the while enjoying all the social, legal and support benefits of the Canadian system.

But his human rights were possibly violated in part by the US and Canada is responsible for that? We did not spring him out of the US prison quick enough and this violated his rights? That possible consequence (jail) is known to all who participate in terrorism, but then the liberal, left, are ecstatic that they can win obscene awards for him from this Liberal government who cannot even provide our military decent mental health treatment for the thousands of returning Canadian Service personnel who risk their lives to prevent terrorism.

Shame on you Mr. Fuhr, shame on your cabinet and Trudeau for capitulating in this gross charade and playing to your base, as it is not in the interests of Canadians.

Doug Waines, West Kelowna
