Ashamed to be a Cana­dian

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Our laws say we owe Khadr (June 6)

Your ed­i­to­rial on the above topic that ends with the quote “The Lib­er­als are right to do this” is wrong on so many lev­els. I am ashamed to be a Cana­dian.

How could I ever ex­plain this logic to my de­ceased grand­fa­ther who served at Vimy Ridge for four years and my de­ceased fa­ther who crossed the At­lantic 19 times on con­voy es­corts that we are giv­ing an ad­mit­ted killer $10.5 mil­lion and an apol­ogy with­out a fight? The right thing to do would have been to spend the money and fight it out in court and pay if the courts de­cide.

But pay­ing this money with­out due process is cow­ardly and shame­ful. Scott Forbes, An­caster
