Is it true Omar Khadr deal saved Canada millions?

  Is it true Omar Khadr deal saved Canada millions? Is it true Omar Khadr deal saved Canada millions?Yes, the government paid the former Guantanamo Bay prisoner $10.5 million. But, Trudeau said, the taxpayer cost to compensate Khadr for his ordeal could have been higher if the government chose to continue its court battle with him and his lawyers.

HAMILTON - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told a woman heckling him about Omar Khadr during a town hall in Hamilton that he, too, is angry about the multimillion-dollar settlement the former Guantanamo Bay inmate received from the government.

The Canadian government paid Khadr a reported $10.5 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged the government violated his Charter rights.

The payment last summer generated a political firestorm that continues today, as a young woman shouted about it when Trudeau attempted to take another person's question at an event at McMaster University.

Trudeau said the anger that a lot of people feel about the payment is real, and that it might surprise people to know he shares that anger and frustration.

The prime minister said that was money that could have been put toward programs to help people, but it is a "bit of a consolation" that if the government hadn't settled, the lawsuit could have cost between $30 and $40 million.

He told the crowd that he wants everyone to continue to be angry about the payment and to take it as a lesson that no Canadian government should ever think it's OK to allow its citizens to be tortured.

Boyle's Parliament Hill meeting raises questions about who meets the PM .
A meeting between the prime minister and former Taliban hostage Joshua Boyle’s family in Justin Trudeau’s Parliament Hill office is raising questions about who is selected to meet with Canada’s head of government and why. On New Year's Day, less than two weeks after Boyle, his wife and three children met with Trudeau, Boyle was arrested and charged with more than a dozen criminal offences , including sexual assault, assault, administering a noxious substance, unlawful confinement and uttering threats.
