jmt18325 said:The precedent has nothing to do with the cheque, but rather the court decisions related to people like Khadr and Arar. The court decisions are what placed an obligation for reparations on the government. Yes, the Harper government chose Arar's reparations, and yes, the Trudeau government chose Khadr's, but that's not the central issue. It's about abuse of rights and abuse of process. If the courts see that, we're in trouble.
The article tells of Canadians who have departed to fight for ISIS......When we repatriate them, and judge them to have had their Charter of Rights violated by any capturing forces, do we pay out another $10.5 million per head? By your argument; we do.
