OTTAWA - Canadian left-wing activists are going international in their bid to pressure Public Safety Minister Vic Toews to bring terrorist Omar Khadr to Canada.
Amnesty International and Lawyers Rights Watch Canada (LRWC) are among 11 groups banding together in hearings by the UN Committee Against Torture this week.
In its submission, LRWC demands Khadr's immediate return to Canada along with compensation from taxpayers for the 'torture' he endured at the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
"While Canada has a general fund for compensation of victims, it is clearly insufficient for such serious breaches," the group said in a statement, suggesting a Royal Commission could come up with a big enough cash payment.
I'm all for bringing him back to Canada, but I strongly disagree with paying him any kind of money. He's a murderer and just because he may have been tortured it doesn't mean he should get some perks for it.
Sorry I had to use a right-wing rag like the Sun but it was the first link I found.
15 year old boy solider defending his village that the bush folks chose to make up the term enemy combatant and call torture enhanced interrogation seem to me the wrong person was in prison all these years
