‘Competing Canadian values’: Awarding Khadr’s settlement to U.S. widow a challenge for Ont. court

The family of a slain U.S. soldier who won a $134 million lawsuit against Omar Khadr in a Utah court could face some significant legal hurdles in collecting any money recently awarded to the former Guantanamo Bay inmate.

With such a complex case, legal analysts say it’s too difficult to predict whether that lawsuit will be upheld in a Canadian court.

“There are a lot of question marks about whether they will ultimately be successful in the claim of the foreign judgement,” said Stephen Pitel, a law professor at Western University in London, Ont.

Competing Canadian values? What horseshit. Funding a Muslim terrorist murderer is not a “Canadian” value except perhaps in PM Useful Idiot’s world.
