This is absolutely sickening: The Trudeau government has already paid Omar Khadr $10.5 million behind the scenes, he has already cashed the cheque, and the Trudeau government made it TAX FREE.
The Globe & Mail has revealed that the Trudeau government “has quietly paid a $10.5-million settlement to Omar Khadr in a move that circumvents legal efforts by two Americans to prevent him from receiving compensation for abuses he suffered as a teenager at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.”
Disgustingly, “The payout to Mr. Khadr and his legal team was given on Wednesday and cashed immediately, according to a source involved in the transaction. Legal settlements do not fall under taxable income, so Mr. Khadr will not have to pay taxes on the $10.5-million.”
The payment itself is a total disgrace. But the way the Trudeau government structured the payment is absolutely disgusting.
It was reportedly set up in such a way that he could cash the payment immediately, meaning Tabitha Speer and Layne Morris won’t have any chance of getting the money.
Also, the government made it a tax free payment. And for anyone who says they have no choice, only fools would believe the government couldn’t have found a way to apply taxes to the payment, or delayed it so Speer and Morris could block it. Amazing how the government is so creative when it comes to getting our tax money, but suddenly becomes helpless when giving it away to an admitted terrorist.
A disgusting betrayal
This is a disgusting betrayal of morality, justice, and all real Canadians.
It’s a betrayal of our troops – who have to fight the government to get benefits worth way less than what Omar Khadr was given – and it’s a betrayal of all true Canadians who are loyal to our country and our values.
Of course, the gutless cowards in the Trudeau government so far refuse to comment.
As the Globe and Mail noted, Layne Morris – who was blinded in one eye by a grenade Khadr admitted to throwing – summed it up perfectly. “His reward is being alive because an American medic like Speer used his special skills to keep him alive. Typically, criminals pay for their crimes, but this time we are paying the criminal for his crimes.”
It’s a sickening and disgusting disgrace.
Canadians must not forget
Canadians must not forget what the Trudeau government did here. Not only did they pathetically give up and refuse to fight the payment, but they tried to do it in a secretive and sneaky way, made it so Tabitha Speer and Layne Morris couldn’t block it, and then even made it tax free.
This is a brutal and disgusting, and the Trudeau government must be held accountable in the next election.
