As outrage grew against Justin Trudeau’s disgusting $10.5 million payment to Omar Khadr, his government pathetically tried to blame the payment on Stephen Harper. Now, a second former Prime Minister has contradicted that deceptive narrative.
After the Trudeau government tried pushing their manipulative lies, Harper released the following statement:
— Stephen Harper (@stephenharper) July 7, 2017
Now, Stephen Harper’s predecessor Paul Martin has unwittingly contradicted Trudeau’s deceptive attempt to blame Harper.
Here’s what Martin told the Canadian Press.
“I think it was a situation that was not well handled by a succession of governments, and I think obviously hindsight demonstrates that. Unfortunately, we continued with the precedent that had been established by … previous governments, and certainly one could argue that more could have been done at that stage, and I wish it had been.”
Of course, Paul Martin didn’t point out the obvious. There was no “previous” government to his that handled the Khadr payment. It was all the Liberal government. He simply replaced Chretien.
This directly contradicts the narrative pushed by the Trudeau government, revealing that their attempt to blame Harper was a despicable lie.
That probably wasn’t what Paul Martin was trying to do, but it’s no surprise that Trudeau’s lies unraveled quickly.
Once again, Trudeau shows nothing but contempt for the Canadian people by attempting to push a bunch of lies instead of taking responsibility for his decisions.
