Why do Canadian Veterans have to fight in court to get way less money than Omar Khadr was just given by Justin Trudeau?
The Equitas Society is a “BC-based, national, cross-partisan, volunteer community organization which since 2011 has sought fair settlements for disabled veterans through a class action lawsuit launched by six representative plaintiffs over deficient compensation awarded under the New Veterans Charter.”
They do great work standing up for Canada’s Veterans, and I previously had the opportunity to speak with Corporal Aaron Bedard – one of the lead plaintiffs in the Equitas case fighting for Veterans to get the support they were promised and have earned – about how the Trudeau government is breaking faith Canada’s Veterans.
Recently, the Equitas Society released a statement on Justin Trudeau’s $10.5 million payment to Omar Khadr. The statement is below:
The Equitas Society is 100% correct on this. It’s disgraceful that Trudeau worked so hard to give millions to Khadr as quickly as possible, yet is fighting Canadian Veterans in court.
What does it say about our government that they would rather reward Omar Khadr than support the brave Canadians who served our country?
