Default Convicted terrorist gets $10.5M

I don't usually get too involved in politics but this really bugs me. A convicted Canadian terrorist who killed a US Medic in Afghanistan will receive $10.5M from the Canadian government. This terrorist was captured and sent Guantanamo and after several years was sent to and detained in Canada. He and his lawyer petitioned the courts on the grounds that he was tortured in Guantanamo, his rights were violated and, to make a long story short, his case was subsequently heard by the Supreme Court of Canada. That court ordered his release and now the Trudeau Government is going to give him $10.5M for his suffering. To me this is wrong and it sickens me. Our current government is showing the world that they are soft on terrorism. This terrorist gets all that money and all the wife of that medic got was to bury her husband. There are reports that she can go after that money and I certainly hope there is an avenue to do so and that she prevails.

I don't understand why a terrorist should receive any money at all. He may have mistreated while he was being incarcerated but that is what he had gotten himself into.
If had not done the crime he would have not served the time.

Governments aren't perfect. As an example, how in the world is trump still in office?

Apparently the wife of the slain medic has filed a motion, here in Ontario, to have Mr. Khadr's assets frozen. I certainly hope she is successful.
