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.
