No? How much are years of life and torture worth? How much should the government have to be penalized to make certain it understands that it cannot abandon Canadians because it doesn't like their politics? The question will have to be answered by the courts after evaluating the issues involved. If it doesn't cost the government big time, why shouldn't the government just keep doing it?
For reasons I can't ascertain you are questioning my point #1`- the Supreme courts have decided that Mr. Khadr isn't entitled to the money. If you have anything that the court judgement erred in- produce it.
ITS produce OR BE QUIET TIME, MR TOBER.
On point # 2, he's been a model prisoner, which entitles release to minimum security. I realise that there is a certain baying for blood quorum in here, but that's normal for forums.
The folks that are insisting that he be 'released to the general populace to be executed haven't a CLUE how Min security works.
Prisoner are prepping for release, and are pretty much 'live and let live'. The guards don't tolerate or reward murder gangs. Within its narrow limits, its a pretty rational place.

Yep. He can be bribed out by the ISI. Folks there would see him as just another 'reformed former fighting man." Karzai will hire him.
Great translating skills.
The Chinese mining consortia will pick him up if the Afghan gov't doesn't
the Pakistani ISI exists to channel American funds to the various insurgents. Balances the pro US forces, keeps the funding flowing in.
