PHOTOS: Justin Trudeau Met With The Boyle Family In The PMO

Joshua Boyle was once married to Omar Khadr’s sister Zaynab. On Twitter, The Boyle Family said “Incidentally, not our first meeting with @JustinTrudeau, that was ’06 in Toronto over other common interests, haha.”

A Twitter account called The Boyle Family (@BoylesVsWorld), has posted photos of their meeting with Justin Trudeau in the Prime Minister’s office.

Connection to Omar Khadr

The Boyle’s were reportedly kidnapped by terrorists near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, after Joshua Boyle and his pregnant wife Caitlan Coleman were hiking in the area.

They were rescued by the Pakistani military, and later refused to board an American plane because he feared being detained.

It was also revealed that Boyle had connections to Omar Khadr, having reportedly once volunteered to be the spokesman for the family.

He was also married to Khadr’s sister Zaynab for a while.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed that the meeting – which will raise the eyebrows of many Canadians – took place, telling CTV “The Prime Minister did meet with the Boyles earlier this week, and like all Canadians, we are relieved that their terrible ordeal is over and they are back home safely. It was a private meeting and we will not say more due to privacy considerations and out of respect for the family.”
