Should Omar Khadr get the Order of Canada?

The former Guantanamo Bay prisoner deserves some kind of recognition for the dignity and stoicism with which he’s borne the mingy behaviour of Canada’s governments.

Well, he killed a Yank soldier. If this board is representative, that should make him pretty popular in Canada.

Canada should get the USA to pay the suit since it was their screw up that started this.....


Khadr’s lawyer says ‘it’s time for the government to . . . apologize to him’ and settle suit

Lawyers for Omar Khadr have been fighting the federal government since 2004 regarding abuses they say occurred to Guantanamo Bay detainee under the Liberal and Conservative governments.

The crux of the $20-million suit is Canada’s unwillingness to recognize that according to international law, Khadr should have been treated as a child soldier during his incarceration.

Hmmm ... no. His treatment was a tad harsh, seeing as he was a boy swept up in his father's jihad but he is still a killer, after all.

Suing Canada is utterly inappropriate, as we saved his a55. Our politicians went out on a limb for him. We should be suing Khadr for damages.

Khadr murdered Sgt. Christopher Speer, a 28 year old medic. Khadr's goal that day was to kill as many soldiers as possible in order to receive reward money ($ 1500/per head). If the Canadian government gives him any order, it should be to an order to sh#t the fu#k up, and him and his lawyer can move in together, and stop mocking Canadians. Enough is enough. They can ask Zaynab, his sister who's passport was revoked by the Canadian High Commission in Pakistan, but nevertheless is still here in Canada with her lovely mother, both confirmed terrorist!!! If this killer receives money or medals from the Canadian Government, Canadians ethics no longer exist, and every single Canadian Soldier needs to stand with their back to the House of Parliament.

This poor excuse of a mother is why Omar is seeking money!!

Not just 'NO', HELL NO! Why is Canada the garbage dump for all the scum in the world? Depart the bast**d and all his family and the Liberals with him.
Trudeau should be sent to live someplace like Saudi Arabia for a couple of years. He likes Muslims and terrorists so much.

Well, that's the nice thing about forums..............everyone's opinion is acceptable. Was it ever proven 100% that Omar is scum?

His lawyers can be deported right along with him. We should never have taken him out of the US prison.

How can we tell? Spray him with Scrubbing Bubbles and see if he disappears?

Of being scum? Is that a crime?

China used to make the convict's family pay for the bullet. North Korea punishes immediate family members for a person's crime. The notion of familial culpability exists in some jurisdictions.

Yes, He pleaded guilty

Well, considering it's not exactly a secret that the rest of his family is scum. Now, if he disowned the rest of them and refused any contact with them because he wanted to, then I'd say you could probably put those Scrubbing Bubbles away.

Is a guy "designated" for life according to reputation of his kin?

I think in Gitmo that is beside the point. I'm not sure of the acceptability of submitting a plea within 10 minutes of being water boarded.

I think you have to murder more than one person to get The Order of Canada don't you?

The late Dr. Henry Morgentaler being a prime example.

Does the killing of an opponent during war qualify as murder?
