A break-in at a judge’s home reveals an odd bit of news: the son just married a Khadr
An Ottawa judge is under 24-hour guard by the RCMP after his house was targeted by a burglar—and bursts of gunfire. Patrick J. Boyle, a justice of the Tax Court of Canada, was vacationing with his wife when someone broke into their home on March 20 and stole a computer monitor, some video games and other personal items. What was left behind, however, was far more frightening: bullet holes through a back door and a bedroom window.
Police are still trying to determine if the gunshots and the robbery were the work of the same person, and more importantly, whether the crimes were random or somehow linked to Justice Boyle’s career on the bench. But Maclean’s has learned that authorities are also exploring another compelling connection: the judge’s son, Joshua, recently married Zaynab Khadr, the notoriously outspoken sister of the lone Canadian locked inside the Guantánamo Bay prison camp.
