“We are disappointed with today’s decision, and regret that a convicted terrorist has been allowed back into Canadian society without having served his full sentence.

Omar Khadr pleaded guilty to heinous crimes, including the murder of American Army medic Sergeant Christopher Speer.

By his own admission, as reported in the media, his ideology has not changed

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Sergeant Christopher Speer during this difficult time. We have vigorously defended against any attempt to lessen his punishment for these crimes.

While Justin Trudeau refused to rule out special compensation for this convicted terrorist and the NDP actively tries to force Canadian taxpayers to compensate him, we believe the victims of crime, not the perpetrators, are the ones who deserve compensation.”
