Pay­out in­sults Cana­dian vets

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I was ap­palled to learn that the youth­ful ter­ror­ist, Omar Khadr, who threw a grenade at our Amer­i­can al­lies, killing one of them, is be­ing given a stipend of some mil­lions of dol­lars from Canada for the deed.

Some say he was only a youth at the time. Un­for­tu­nately, I still think of him as a ter­ror­ist in train­ing fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of his father and brother. This pay­out to Khadr is a dis­grace and an in­sult to all Cana­dian veter­ans.
