Yesterday Ralph Goodale and company desperately tried to blame the Harper Government for the outrage of having to apologize and pay off Omar Khadr.
However many people are pointing out that Ralph Goodale was a Cabinet minister during the Chretien/Martin years when this all started. So he should be the last person in the world to blame the previous Conservative Government for anything to do with this matter.
It’s also a bit rich for Goodale to try to act so holier-than-thou and outraged at the so-called leaker.
On top of it all it sure does seem that this payment was rushed through in order to circumvent the U.S. victims from being able to sue for any of Khadr’s taxpayer-funded windfall.
