http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/harper-s- ... r-1.646481
Earlier Friday, Harper apologized and offered a $10.5 million compensation packageto Arar and his family, along with money for legal fees, for the "terrible ordeal"they suffered after Arar spent nearly a year in a Syrian jail.
"On behalf of the government of Canada, I wish to apologize to you…and your family for any role Canadian officials may have played in the terrible ordeal that all of you experienced in 2002 and 2003," Harper said.
"I sincerely hope that these words and actions will assist you and your family in your efforts to begin a new and hopeful chapter in your lives," he said.

Ah, I don't remember the Americans invading Canada and I especially don't remember the Americans storming Kadir's Scarborough residence. If the Americans were occupiers of Afghanistan so to was Kadir. He and his father purposely went there to fight a war for Canada's enemies. It is treason, plain and simple, and now he is being rewarded $10 million of our money for that treason and for killing an American special forces soldier.

My only hope is that the the family of the soldier Khadir killed can collect on the $100million + wrongful death claim they won in the U.S.
Oh I wonder how much of that money is going to be used to buy his lovely jihad loving family a new house.
All this because the abhorrent U.S. Actually value life...not like the Khadrs, and saved Omar's life after he killed one of then.

I see. It'd be great if RFD had more professionals posting and giving their thoughts rather than getting entangled in emotional arguments with people who have their own issues with the government . At least with this, I managed to get better insight into this case.akira1971 wrote: ↑Jul 4th, 2017 9:10 amThis is the problem with this forum. Do you guys even know why Canada was required to offer the settlement? The fact is, a Canadian citizen (a 15yr old minor, no less) was allowed to be tortured at Guantanamo Bay. The Canadian government had a duty to protect and defend him (and all citizens) from such abuse, and they failed.
Whether he committed war crimes or not, his "confession" was obtained illegally through sleep deprivation, being threatened by rape constantly, physical abuse and being left hogtied. If the US wanted to convict him, they should have stuck with normal investigative techniques that did not violate his human rights (as signed by both US and Canada) and Canada had a critical duty to ensure his rights were observed.
Instead, we have both sides of the political spectrum on RFD arguing (as usual) past each other and not even about the actual reason for the settlement. This is an embarrassment to RFD.

No, I mean the enemies that Canada declares to be their enemies...the ones who Canada sends its military to fight. It is funny how you try to take the moral high ground on pretty much every topic but you cannot even bring yourself to say that it is wrong for Canadians to fight on the opposite side of a war in which Canadians are fighting.Doubleshot wrote: ↑Jul 4th, 2017 8:03 amCanada's enemies?

US value life? That's why they're the biggest arms exporters and wage global war?
Value life so much they're taking away health care for tens of millions?
Yeah sure....the US "values" lives...they don't even value their own citizens lives
