Well Canada we the taxpayers have won the lottery. Here are the numbers
from Juristat,Statistics Canada from 2004/5 and these numbers are 5 years
old.The cost of incarcerating a Federal male prisoner in Canada is $87,665
per prisoner per year.
We will get to give food and lodging to the Jihadist terrorist Omar
Khadr who has pled guilty.The 8 years he will spend in our federal prison
system will cost us a minimum of approximately three quarters of a million
dollars to lock up this individual.
The U.S. will save a lot of money by shipping him here.I say keep him and maybe he will spend most of his sentence incarcerated instead of our system which I am sure will find some
way to have him walking our streets in a heartbeat.
