Omar Khadr a cash cow for activist lawyers

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I explained how Justin Trudeau's decision to award Omar Khadr $10.5 million was welcome news within his circle of Liberal elites.

Polls show that 71 per cent of Canadians are opposed to the multi-million dollar terrorist payout —but Trudeau's inner-circle is made up of members of the 29 percent.

That includes the activist lawyers and judges who routinely work to defend political correctness and Islamism. 

WATCH my video to see who else supports Trudeau's decision, including Liberal MP and Islamist sympathizer Omar Alghabra

“Given that the Supreme Court found clear charter breaches, Mr. Khadr almost certainly would have been successful at trial. The real question is, how much would he be awarded? Calculating damages is not an exact science, especially when it comes to charter breaches.

The most recent guidance is found in the Ivan Henry case. In 2016, after having been successful in the Supreme Court in 2015, he was awarded $8 million at trial. He was wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for almost 27 years. Most of the award was to vindicate Mr. Henry’s breached charter rights, and to deter similar breaches of charter rights.

Similarly, David Milgaard was paid $10 million in 1999 for over 22 years imprisonment. Steven Truscott received $6.5 million for 10 years in jail and living with the stigma of being a convicted murderer for almost 50 years.

The payments for wrongful convictions likely serve as the upper limit for charter breaches. For government, a certain practicality comes in: what’s the price of not having this dragged out for another 10 years and having a possible further loss at the Supreme Court of Canada? That’s where the $10.5 million figure comes from."

Khadr asked for $20 million. Canadian government had already spent $5 million in legal fees. They decided to settle for $10 million.

If you don’t want money to be spent to compensate violation of charter rights, tell Conservative politicians to get educated on charter rights.

Currently there are three new law suits against the government like Kahdr,s. Three men.
Two Canadian isis women found in Mosul with suicide vests and AKs I am sure Canadians will be paying them next.

What Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you.

“An Ontario Superior Court judge has turned down a request for a freeze order on Omar Khadr’s $10.5-million settlement.

Lawyers for the widow of a U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan, and another injured U.S. soldier, were in court seeking a freeze order pending the final outcome of their bid to get an Ontario court to force Mr. Khadr to hand over his settlement to them.

We don’t, thank goodness, in Canada have one law for Omar Khadr and one law for all other Canadians," Justice Belobaba told the courtroom in announcing his decision.

Speaking of lawyers looking for cash cows, Barbara Jackman, a Toronto immigration lawyer is positively salivating at the possibilities.

“I really think they need to work with the Muslim community in terms of developing plans to assist them,” she said. “They are Canadian kids, we can’t just sort of throw them away.”

“Babies born in the Middle East to at least one parent who is a Canadian citizen would automatically be Canadian themselves, Gowing a spokesman for Public Safety Canada, said.”

“This issue of orphans and kids born to people who joined Islamic State is going to haunt us for a decade,” Phil Gurski, a former Canadian Security Intelligence Service analyst said.

“Does the Canadian government have a legal, let alone a moral, responsibility to act on these people’s behalf? I think the answer is ‘No,’ ” said the head of the Borealis consulting company. “They made a conscious decision to leave this country and to join a group that everyone and his dog knows is a terrorist group … ‘It sucks to be you; live with it.’ ”
