I’ve said it other places, I’ll say it here: Maher Arar could have taken the money awarded him and retreated back into private life to heal from the scars our government was complicit in inflicting on him. No one would have have thought the less of him. Instead he (and his wife) speak out for the consistent application of those values that are best about our society. He puts our own leaders to shame. It’s mind boggling they thought this man was a jihadist.
A Canadian hero.
