Canada: The Serial Apologizer - And Harbourer of Criminal Bureaucrats

Canada Sheds Crocodile Tears over Yet Another 
Compensation Package Paid to a Canadian Patsy

Canadians have a reputation for saying "I'm sorry" at the slightest chance they may have offended someone.  Two Canadians collide getting off a bus and the "I'm sorry's" ring out for a block.  My mother used to say to us, after we'd done something wrong and apologized, "Don't say you're sorry unless you mean it...and the only way you'll show you mean it is by NOT DOING IT AGAIN!"

Today, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used the G20 podium to grandstand, appear heartfelt, magnanimous and contrite, all at the same time.  But was he really sorry?  Will he ensure the this will never again happen to Canadian citizens?  Please read the following report from the CBC and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

On Khadr, Trudeau says Charter protects all Canadians 'even when it is uncomfortable'

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects all Canadians "even when it is uncomfortable," responding to a question about his government's apology and controversial payout to former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr.

"The Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects all Canadians, every one of us, even when it is uncomfortable. This is not about the details or merits of the Khadr case. When the government violates any Canadian's Charter rights we all end up paying for it," he told reporters in Hamburg, where he's wrapping up the G20 summit.

Khadr — who has been branded a terrorist by some and a child soldier subjected to torture by others — received a $10.5-million cheque Wednesday, sources told CBC News

IMO, The Canadian bureaucracy is using Khadr one more appear to be something they're definitely NOT.  How many times is it now that Canada has had to pay millions in compensation packages to victims of systemic injustices?  These cases include manufacturing patsies to justify agency budgets (as in the case of Nuttall/Korody that is still dragging on...with the Federal Government appealing the verdict) or, as in the case I refer to as "The Cost of Doing Business", get a trade "discount".  Add to them the Mahar Arrar and Omar Khadr "torture patsies" and I'm counting at least $10 million on average in compensation.  And that doesn't include the cost of the trials.  There are a few other cases I'm vaguely familiar with...the Toronto area  "paintball 7" comes to mind...but I am not familiar with the details.

Four cases of bureaucratic criminality. I'm talking about brazenly breaking laws that are on the books...not to mention the "Charter of Rights".  And the government of the day just sluffs it off with an "I'm sorry" and a pile of taxpayer "hush money".  That's right. Hush Money.  Once paid off, the victims are never given a day in court and are not allowed to talk about the facts of the case.  I think Canada deserves to hear how these gross miscarriages of justice keep happening, time after time.  I would love to hear the details of the communications between the Canadian security authorities and the US military at Guantanamo about who ordered Khadr's tortureTorture of a teenagerIpso facto, someone in a very high position of authority got away with some very serious crimes.  Is that person or are those Canadian bureaucrats still in their positions?  If so, where is the assurance that this same atrocity will not happen to more Canadians?

And what is going on that the government of the day can change...but the serial bureaucratic criminality continues?  Why does Trudeau feel pressure to cover up crimes that occurred in the Harper era?  Are there some foreign moles involved?  Just asking.

And the Canadian media.....ahhhhh the media.  They're even worse!  They participate in the take-down of the patsy and the vilification of same...without asking the most elementary questions...and with the memory of fleas....totally unable to see the distinct pattern of criminality.

I say that if this happens one more time...Canadians should rise up as one and demand an investigation.  No more harbouring very powerful and very anonymous criminals.  A class action lawsuit on behalf of All Canadians...suing the relevant government bureaucracy for extreme negligence and/or corruption.  And no settlement.  We need to air all this dirty laundry out in a court of law!

As it relates to any agreements on Syria ,the fly in the ointment is going to be the CIA/deep state interests.Trump can say what he wants , what happens on the ground is what counts.Lets see if the US walks the talk .I am not going to hold my breath but I will always have hope.
