Family of Shot Muslim Man Sues Canada For $10M

You may recall that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau got heckled several times during various town hall meetings a few weeks ago when his citizens wanted an explanation as to “why do you think it’s OK to give $10.5 million to a person that killed a soldier?”

<a href=""> As we told you at the time, </a>a whopping 71 percent of Canadians still believe that their government made the wrong choice last year by settling a case out of court for a $10.5million payment for a former Guantanamo detainee, paid out to his Muslim family living in Canada.

Mr Trudeau might have just opened the floodgates with that one as the family of a young Muslim man shot outside a mosque has now decided to sue the Canadian government, in essence the police forces and the paramedics, as they feel their son was not properly taken care of that evening.

How much do they want? Well, $10 million. One could wonder where they got that idea.

19-year-old Mr Yosif Al-Hasnawi was shot on 2 December 2017 near his Hamilton mosque. According to his family’s lawsuit, it took paramedics 38 minutes from the time they arrived to transport him to hospital.

They describe Mr Al-Hasnawi "lying on the pavement in pain, holding his stomach and with a clear and visible bloody shotgun wound."

The family is also suing for the funeral costs and the loss of future revenue, assuming that their son was going to be a doctor.

They claim "recurring ruminations over the horrible way the late Yosif Al-Hasnawi met his death, the terrible agony he endured before perishing,"

A spokesperson for the city of Hamilton, Ms Allison Jones, said: "We continue to work closely with Niagara Regional Police and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to preserve the integrity of all investigative processes currently underway."
