The Canadian Government appears to be working on a deal with the Iranian Regime but they should be wary of working with the world’s number one state-sponsor of terrorism.
• Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister in 2015 and lifted nearly all economic sanctions against Iran
• Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion met with Regime officials during the 2016 UN General Assembly meeting
• Two Canadian-Iranian MPs hosted a roundtable event in Toronto about re-opening diplomatic ties but highly favoured pro-regime voices
In 2012 diplomatic ties were severed with Iran because it was feared that Canadians would be unsafe in the Gulf country.
Not only was the embassy of the UK (a fellow commonwealth country) attacked, but the Iranian Regime has been routinely kidnapping visitors to use as pawns in government negotiations, like Canadian professor Homa Hoodfar.
Not only was it unsafe for Canadians in Iran but it was unsafe for Canadians in Canada after the true role of the Iranian embassy was revealed.
The Regime uses their embassies to spy on Western countries and promote terrorism, according to the Toronto Sun.
Their article revealed that Hamid Mohammadi, a diplomat working in the Iranian embassy, had written a Persian-language article urging Canadian-Iranians to “remain loyal” to the Regime, to “resist being melted into the dominant Canadian culture” and to “occupy high-level key positions” so they could one day be of service to the Regime.
Is Canada prepared to let this happen again?
This hasn’t even touched on the danger that the Iranian Regime poses to the Gulf Region or the world in general:
• Iran wants to “wipe Israel off the map” with nuclear weapons
• The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp (listed as a terrorist entity under Canada’s Criminal Code) funds and trains terrorist groups including Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Taliban
• The Iranian Regime openly destabilises the Middle East
• It props up the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad
• The Regime killed 85 people in Argentina by using its embassy to plan a bombing
• They used their French and German embassies to assassinate Iranian dissidents
