The widow of a Toronto businessman killed in the World Trade Centre on 9/11 says its sickening that the Liberal government has allowed terrorist Omar Khadr to play the victim card and collect $10.5 million.
Maureen Basnicki’s husband, Ken Basnicki, was in New York City on business when he was killed in the North Tower on Sept. 11, 2001.
She says the “imbalance in the justice system” reared its ugly head with Khadr’s Las Vegas-like payout.
“I feel the same as the majority of Canadians,” Basnicki said. “It’s excessive and it irks me my tax dollars are going to a self-confessed member of a terrorist organization.”
“There are just so many reasons I object to it,” added the advocate for the rights of Canadian terror victims.
“I would have hoped the government would have been equally concerned about my rights as a victim of terrorists. The (Canadian) government even came after me for taxes owed by my late husband,” said Basnicki, adding it was at the time “when I was receiving my first shipment of body parts.”
9/11 is the myth that keeps on giving – even when enforcing another myth, like the Omar Khadr story.
