End of a royal era

Canada's myth of inclusion

The words that can make us calmer


From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: Dirty little secrets

Many Canadians are still angry with Trudeau over the $10.5 million Khadr settlement - but there appears to be much more. This story, in the Toronto Star, came out last February:

Then in March, the CBC broke the story that an apology had been made along with a settlement for an undisclosed amount:

Almalki was arrested at the Damascus airport in May 2002.  El Maati was arrested at the Damascus airport in November 2001. Nureddin was stopped by Syrian officials as he crossed into Syria from visiting family in northern Iraq in December 2003. These arrests were during Liberal rule (Jean Chretien was Prime Minister).

Why are taxpayers, who must foot the bill, not informed of the settlement amount. The three had asked for $100 million in compensation or nearly 10 times the Khadr settlement.

Our MPs need to be asking some pointed questions.
