This was one of the videos we recorded on Canada Day in Strathcona park. It was a nice surprise given the purpose of the event. He had a few surprising things to say.

The IRGC members may be masking themselves as news reports.Please circulate this urgently to all contacts, including politicians and media,Thank youRam Joubin, Barrister & Solicitor
As per usual, every report contradicts every other report. Its probably true that Iran fired some missiles and its probably true that they hit something or close to something. Many people are reported to be dead and no one was hurt or killed.
Update (03.13.2022 1158ET): Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has claimed responsibility for a missile strike on what it called an Israeli “strategic center” located in the Kurdish capital of Erbil, located in northern Iraq, according to Bloomberg, citing the Revolutionary Guard’s official news portal, Sepah News.
The semi-official Tasnim news agency, which is closely aligned to the IRGC, said 10 precision-guided missiles were fired from northwestern Iran, citing an informed source that it didn’t name. The report added that the strike “very likely” resulted in “many casualties” without providing any details. -Bloomberg
Nobody was hurt or killed in the attack, according to US Deputy Secretary of State, Wendy Sherman, denying earlier reports that the US consulate was the target and had been hit. Sherman told Fox News that the incident was of “great concern to all of us,” and amounted to attacking Iraq’s sovereignty.
As we noted last night, the attack comes days after Iran vowed revenge for an Israeli missile attack near Damascus, Syria which killed two IRGC members. According to a Sunday statement by Sepah, there will be a “severe and destructive response” to any future attacks from Israel.
Last night’s report was that the missiles hit a US consulate in Iraq.
First, the why:
Statue of Soleimani unveiled in Lebanon complete with drumroll
And the threat:
A terrifying message threatening to fly a plane into the Capitol building to avenge the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was broadcast on air traffic control frequencies on Monday afternoon.
The threat, delivered via a digitized voice, said: ‘We are flying into the Capitol Wednesday. Soleimani will be avenged.’
Congress plans to confirm Joe Biden’s win at the Capitol on Wednesday.
The threat was made almost one year to the day after the death of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike ordered by President Donald Trump.
It is not yet clear who sent the message and the threat is not believed to credible, CBS reports, but the Pentagon and other agencies were briefed on Tuesday.
