Letter: Justin Trudeau’s spending problematic

“I know he gave $10 million to Omar Khadr because he was afraid of litigation.”

To the editor:

This is for the two families that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau let be punished for his lack of action for their arrest in China. I know he is a deer in the headlights dealing with tough decisions.

I know he gave $10 million to Omar Khadr because he was afraid of litigation.

Giving money to a young terrorist and letting two innocent Canadians sit in Chinese jails shows that as a leader of this nation, he is letting them suffer for lack of action.

If anybody should get free money from (the prime minister’s) out of control spending, these two should.
