Give Khadr’s money to fam­i­lies

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Omar Khadr

Cana­di­ans be­lieve in the rule of law and the sanc­tity of our char­ter rights. How­ever, much of this Khadr af­fair sits badly with the av­er­age ci­ti­zen — the pay­out, the tim­ing (Par­lia­ment re­cessed), and the se­crecy.

Mr. Khadr can do much to as­suage Cana­dian ou­trage by mak­ing two sim­ple ges­tures: he can apol­o­gize to the Amer­i­can vic­tims (even with us­ing the caveat of be­ing a brain­washed child at the time) and he can gave the vic­tims’ fam­i­lies the $10.5 mil­lion (or at least half ). Then, per­haps, the stench would dis­si­pate. Ger­ard Shkuda, Burling­ton
