My opinion is that while the SSC said we violated the rights of this guy , I don't think it was worth 10.5 million.Archanfel wrote: ↑Aug 8th, 2017 10:06 amThe thing is I am not sure what is your opinion exactly. Sure, you don't like the payment, I don't either, but you also don't sound all that confident that continue fighting it would be cheaper or have much chance of success. In fact, national post, not the most liberal friendly publication, quoted a legal expert saying the chance of that is slim at best and it's probably sensible to settle. So it's hard to know whether your opinion is that we could save some money or we should just fight it for the sake of it. That's the problem with a lot of the opinions of "majority of Canadians". They complain a lot without offering any viable alternatives and concrete plans. Things like I don't like this tax, but I don't like cut welfare funded by the tax either. Yes, it's valid to have an opinion, it's also fruitless. Come election time, nobody would offer anything different and the same old gets elected in.
You can vote to change our constitution and I will even support you, but I suspect the majority of Canadians don't have the stomach for it.
My opinion I that it could have been less that 10.5 million but who decided on that amount" It was not like it went out to public tender. Why that much vice 3 or 5 million?
My opinion, was about your statement that it would cost a lot to go through the courts and I said it would cost no more to go through the courts than it does to sit at their desks doing nothing. The lawyers get paid regardless.
My opinion of would we have had to pay more if we went to court is that it may not have gone to court if the guy has no money to take it there.
My opinion is Khadr got way way more then he deserves and it irks me (and the majority of Canadians). Can I do anything about it? No, just bitch about it and that makes me feel a bit better.
