Canada has suspended diplomatic relations with Iran and is expelling Iranian diplomats from Canada, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced in a statement today.”Canada has closed its embassy in Iran, effective immediately, and declared personae non gratae all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada,” Baird said in a statement. Those diplomats must leave within five days.”Canada’s position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the Government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.”The statement cited Iran’s support for the Assad regime in Syria and failure to comply with UN resolutions on its nuclear program, and its threats against Israel.The statement also makes reference to Iran’s “blatant disregard” of the Vienna Convention that guarantees the protection of diplomatic personnel.More to come

  1. I would love to know the full reason for this, the possible motives are that Israel is going to attack Iran, or that NATO is going to intervene in Syria, or both.

  2. Finally, considering these weasels are beating war drums, trying to fire up a new round of genocidal crematoria, soliciting a fifth column here in Canada and working feverishly to build nuclear weapons……no they are not welcome…

  3. And a lot scarier, I am expecting the Israeli attack at any time, I fully expect the Iranian agents in place to start terror and sabatobe attacks shortly after the attack.

  4. I sent my letter of congratulations to Harper & Baird today and while I was at It I drafted another letter to the people that make immigration decisions, Kenney and the group of 12 that are constantly being lobbied by immigration lawyers and special interest groups to bring in more muslims. My letter opposes this.

    BTW if you want to oppose more muslim immigration make sure you go to this handy dandy page at “immigration Watch” Canada first.

  5. As large as Canada is, only 250,000 immigrants per year. In the U.S., over one million. Last year, almost 1,400,000. Of those, only 100,000 were of European ancestry, mostly from Eastern Europe. The rest from Third-World countries.

    Speaking of expel, I’d throw out all immigrants from Third-World countries that came here during the past 30 years.

  6. YEs, throw out those people, who send a disgusting amount of money to their asian/middle east/africa developing third world homeland countries and thus indirectly causing more islamisation problems.
