Trudeau: Canadians rightfully angry after Ottawa pays $31.25M to men falsely imprisoned in Syria

The federal government has paid settlements totalling just over $31 million to three men falsely accused of links to terror groups, then imprisoned and tortured in Syria in the early 2000s.

Ottawa announced earlier this year that it had settled with Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El Maati and Muayyed Nureddin.

None of the three men has ever been charged with any terror-related offence. They have all denied ever participating in any terror activity.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland also formally apologized last winter to the three “for any role Canadian officials may have played in relation to their detention and mistreatment abroad and any resulting harm.”

Ottawa pays out $10.5-million to Khadr amid potential legal battle

The Trudeau government has quietly paid a $10.5-million settlement to Omar Khadr in a move that circumvents legal efforts by two Americans to prevent him from receiving compensation for abuses he suffered as a teenager at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The payout to Mr. Khadr and his legal team was given on Wednesday and cashed immediately, according to a source involved in the transaction. Legal settlements do not fall under taxable income, so Mr. Khadr will not have to pay taxes on the $10.5-million.

$145 Settlement Reached in Canadian Government LGBT Purge Class Action Lawsuit

TORONTO, Nov 29, 2017 /CNW/ - Following the official apology by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the state-sponsored, systemic oppression, and rejection of LGBTQ citizens, McKiggan Hebert Lawyers has announced that an Agreement in Principle was recently reached between counsel for the class members and the Department of Justice to settle the LGBTQ Purge class action lawsuit.

The "LGBT Purge" refers to the Canadian government's systematic campaign between the 1950s and the 1990s to identify and purge lesbians, gay men, and those suspected of being gay from the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence.  "It caused an enormous amount of pain, anguish and heartache to those impacted by this horrible movement initiated by the government," stated John McKiggan, partner at McKiggan Hebert Lawyers. "This purge, which lasted for decades, denied individuals their basic human rights and treated fellow Canadians like outcasts."

"I am pleased that after a great deal of hard work the parties have managed to reach an Agreement in Principle to settle the class-action," stated McKiggan. "Not only does the settlement provide compensation to address the harms suffered by class members, it also provides significant funding to reconciliation measures to I help class members heal and to educate Canadians about this chapter of our history."

As a part of the settlement, some lands in the area of the bridge corridor to Kawehno:ke are also being offered back to the MCA. The MCA had filed proceedings against the Canadian government over the Seaway in 1976.  "The St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project changed Akwesasne in many harmful and damaging ways," the MCA commented in a press release. "In 2008, Ontario Power Generation signed a settlement agreement with Akwesasne to accept responsibility for their part in damages to the community’s lands and way of life when the hydro dam was constructed along with the Seaway.  That $46 million offer was accepted by Akwesasne through a community referendum in 2008 and was used to create the Mohawks of Akwesasne Community Settlement Trust."​
