Andrew Scheer is promising to get tough on the Liberals over the Omar Khadr decision that he calls “disgusting.”
The new leader of the federal opposition says his party will force a debate in the House the day that they get back to work.
As many know by now, Khadr is the convicted terrorist that killed American medic Christopher Speer on the battlefield.
At the annual Conservative Party Stampede barbecue in Calgary, Scheer spoke at length about the issue of the Canadian government apologizing to, and promising this convicted terrorist a $10.5M payout.
In a media scrum post speech, Scheer also addressed his stance on what he thought about the initial Supreme Court decision and Khadr’s repatriation.
Watch as I share what Scheer had to say about all of this.
The Liberals say the Canadian government won’t pay out ransom money for Canadian citizens kidnapped by terrorists, but they’ll give a convicted terrorist millions of dollars?
They have the blood of John Ridsdel and Robert Hall on their hands after sitting back and watching the murder of these two innocent Canadian men at the hands of terrorists who had kidnapped them in the Philippines.
