Is Trudeau a fan of terrorists?
RE: Our laws say we owe Khadr (June 6)
Omar Khadr was old enough to know right from wrong when followed in his terrorist father’s footsteps and joined al-Qaida. Omar Khadr was also old enough to be held responsible for his actions when he threw a grenade at two U.S. soldiers, killing one and permanently disabling the other (this was after being given the opportunity to peacefully leave with the women and children). Therefore, what responsibility does the Canadian government have to assure that Khadr be released from U.S. custody contrary to U.S. law and policy?
This is just another example of how far Justin Trudeau’s style of leadership differs from that of his father: Pierre would never had made a deal with a convicted terrorist, or help one subvert an allied nation’s law. This is what he told me and my fellow students in 1979 at our high school, during a visit, while taking questions during aQ& A session. Pierre Trudeau was no fan of terrorists so why is his son Justin? Mike Girdlestone, Hamilton
