CTF petition opposing $10 million payout to Omar Khadr reaches 52,000 signatures

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) announced this morning that the organization’s petition calling on the Trudeau government to revoke its offer of a $10 million payout to Omar Khadr had already reached 52,000 signatures.

“With over 52,000 names in under 48 hours, it is clear this issue has struck a nerve,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “The notion of giving $10 million in taxpayer money to Khadr is so outrageous that many Canadians are simply beside themselves.”

The CTF is looking forward to delivering the petition to the Trudeau government, but wants to ensure all Canadians wanting to sign the petition will have their chance before delivery.

The CTF’s petition opposing the $10 million financial payment to Khadr is available HERE.

I oppose the $10 million payment to Khadr. This is not the kind of message we want to send to terrorists.

I'd like to start with I am not a racist or a hater what so ever. I did vote Liberal in the last election. I also convinced many non voting friends to get up and vote liberal. If this is how the liberal government is going to use our tax dollars or even simply if this is how the liberal government is going to handle such an issue i can assure you i will never EVER again vote for a liberal government. This is embarrassing to Canada and its insulting to us its people along with every victim ever of terrorism internationally and those fighting to stop it. If they actually are brainless enough to go through with this, they will have lost my vote for the rest of my life and i will do everything in my power going forward to make sure everyone i know is aware of there lunacy in how they handled this matter. I'm sure i am not alone when i say the liberal government will have lost many many voters if they award him this money. Hopefully they do not tarnish our reputation as a smart country. UNBELIEVABLE.

I have never been more disgusted with parliament as I am after learning of the Khadr award. First of all an apology and then a huge reward for being a terrorist and murderer. If there was a way to take back my years of military service I would leap at the opportunity to do so. Wounded and maimed Canadian veterans are struggling to make ends meet with very little or no help from our (mistakenly) elected government. Trudeau is an embarrassment. Impeachment where are you?

The federal government payout to Omar Kadr is the pure fault of the Harper government's - if payment has to be made then sue the Conservative party it was Harper and his associates who was in power at the time.

Trudeau paying a terrorist 10 million dollars, this idiot makes Canada look bad. Funding terrorism is not the kind of message we want to send to the rest of the world.

The Liberal Government is showing us how incompetant they are in their thinking, policy, morality, administration (negotiation). They also think that they have a mandate to spend, spend and spend. Just wait and see .. they have opened up a can of worms... supporting terriorism, ignoring the more deserving causes and cases. Hope this is the beginning of the end to the Trudeau government - for ever, and let's make it happen.

This is so unjust. Omar mention he wanted a new start. Canada gave it to him the past 10 years living in Edmonton, no?

I worked in Afghanistan for 14 months for the UN, and was proud of the work that myself and other Canadians and Nationalities did over there to assist the good people of that country. I witnessed first hand the devastation that Terrorism can wreak on a country and it's people unlike our clueless Prime Minister. Instead of being proud, I now have 10.5 Million reasons to be ashamed and embarrassed of my Country and Government, although the Trudeau government has never represented me and my views.

It is really truly disgusting that we are giving terrorist, tax payer money. What will the Liberal Government do next. This money should be given to the families of whom he killed and injured.

This guy's a real piece of work! First he gives away 840 million of our money to countries overseas and then another 10.5 million to an admitted terrorist while we have thousands of first nations people living in mold infested shacks and no clean drinking water. Now is that how you want your hard earned tax dollars spent? When will theses guys wake up!
