John Baird's full statement:

“Canada has closed its embassy in Iran, effective immediately, and declared personae non gratae all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada.
“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 Iranian regime is providing increasing military assistance to the Assad regime; it refuses to comply with UN resolutions pertaining to its nuclear program; it routinely threatens the existence of Israel and engages in racist anti-Semitic rhetoric and incitement to genocide; it is among the world’s worst violators of human rights; and it shelters and materially supports terrorist groups, requiring the Government of Canada to formally list Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.
“Moreover, the Iranian regime has shown blatant disregard for the Vienna Convention and its guarantee of protection for diplomatic personnel. Under the circumstances, Canada can no longer maintain a diplomatic presence in Iran. Our diplomats serve Canada as civilians, and their safety is our number one priority.
“Diplomatic relations between Canada and Iran have been suspended. All Canadian diplomatic staff have left Iran, and Iranian diplomats in Ottawa have been instructed to leave within five days.
“Canadians in Iran seeking routine consular and passport services should contact the Embassy of Canada in Ankara, Turkey, or any other Canadian mission. Those who require urgent assistance should contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa, by calling collect at 613-996-8885 or by sending an email to sos@international.gc.ca.
“Canada has updated its Travel Reports and Warnings to advise Canadians to avoid all travel to Iran. Canadians who have Iranian nationality are warned in particular that the Iranian regime does not recognize the principle of dual nationality. By doing so, Iran makes it virtually impossible for Government of Canada officials to provide consular assistance to Iranian-Canadians in difficulty.”

From what we see hear on the news,the US and Israel apparently plan to possibly attack Iran,and we all know what will happen if it is done,Canada and other "Allies" will be told to do their part in it.

The current gov't of the United States will not join an Israeli attack on Iran.

If Israel attacks Iran, it will be a case of self-preservation.

Israel is our ally, Iran our enemy. While we will NOT be involved in any attack on Iran, we would probably be involved in subsequent efforts to keep the Gulf of Hormuz open to shipping.

There are ****loads of scientists and strategists they'd love to have come back to Iran. The people of Iran are decent and well educated but the regime they have to live under is ****ed and has it's role to play.

A little FYI for you. This big ol' mess between Iran/Israel nukes/no nukes is just a slice of the overall picture. There is more than meets the eye.

I'm not going to fall for another Iraq and I'm sure as **** not defending Iran This is more about energy than anything else. Think I'm wrong? What if I said "gasoline is going to drop in price very soon because of this kerfuffle"? India just reaffirmed long term energy contracts with Iran. In response you are going to see the price of oil drop and US imports drop at the same time within the next month before the election.

India is preparing for the fallout....

Actually Canada and Israel are not formally allies. The Harper government was exploring a mutual defense agreement with Israel, but nothing came of the talks. But if anyone has evidence to the contrary, please correct me.

That said, I have no doubts that if Israel bombed Iran, the US and Canada would become involved in the inevitable quagmire...

How absurd. Every country uses their embassy to try to exert influence over its ex-pats, and with the current government.
This is a basic combination of the current government's Islamaphobia, and the next stage of pandering to the Jewish community.

Recruiting ex-pats to carry out specific actions to gain influence over a gov't and a people is of some concern, especially when the protagonist is the largest supporter of Islamist terror in the world.

Ask this woman, who is in hiding from Islamist terrorists that murdered her co-worker, who was once a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood, who underwent FGM........ask her about Islamophobia.

Here she makes a fool of Avi Lewis.

WHAT do the Jews have to do with it??? If you did a minimum of research, you would discover there are almost twice as many Muslims as Jews in Canada........so why would the gov't "pander" to them??

Conclusion??

You are an idiot.

Go away.

"WHAT do the Jews have to do with it???
Perhaps you're not aware of this, but Israel (the Jewish state), does not encourage countries to have good relations with Iran, because they see Iran as a threat. Their lobby groups and embassy influence ex-pat Israelis and other Jews to minimize Iran's influence.

"If you did a minimum of research, you would discover there are almost twice as many Muslims as Jews in Canada........so why would the gov't "pander" to them??"

So you believe that the Muslim community in Canada has more political influence in Canada than the Jewish community?

Ha. If the US and others chose to attack Iran the government would be taken out within a few weeks. I imagine it'd be very similar to Iraq. While it would not be pleasant for the Iranian civilians or the troops sent over there it would be nowhere near as bad as a single day of world war one or two.

As for cutting off diplomatic relations - no big deal. Its not like they were listening to anything anyway.

Russia needs to keep Iran handy for access to the Indian Ocean. Waters of the Caspian flow through downtown Moscow.

I prefer that CC has as many members as possible, supporting a diversity of opinions... including ones I don't share. I'd rather people didn't try to start flame wars.

Yes but they never claimed they'd get directly involved on one side or the other.

I suspect that if China and Russia felt that Israel and the US attacked Iran without provocation or a reasonable justification, they'd step up their arms sales... a good chance that's probably already happening behind the scenes.

Bennys balls are kept in a jar on a shelf in Tel-Aviv along with the rest of the collection of western nuts.

"WHAT do the Jews have to do with it???"

I'm still somewhat flabbergasted at your lack of awareness.
Here, this is from B'Nai Brith, Canada's leading Jewish lobby group.

For Immediate Release.


Toronto, September 7, 2012


B’nai Brith Canada welcomes the announcement earlier today by Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird to cut all diplomatic ties with the regime in Iran, by closing the Canadian Embassy in Tehran and evicting Iranian diplomats in this country. This follows on the heels of the Jewish human rights organization’s call for Senator Don Meredith to sever ties with the Iranian Embassy after he attended one of their events.


Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada commented:


“Today’s announcement by the Federal Government to cut diplomatic relations with Iran is welcomed by all Canadians of good conscience, who are concerned with the extremist Islamist regime’s ongoing human rights atrocities, its genocidal intent towards the Jewish people, its support for international terrorism and its aggressive nuclear ambitions which threaten not just Israel but the entire Western world.


“We welcome Canada’s move given our call yesterday to alert the public to the stratagems Iran’s diplomats have been using to infiltrate Canadian institutions, intimidate Iranian expatriates and pro-democracy forces, and recruit followers to an agenda of hate, repression and violence.”

You have a problem with the truth???

And it wasn't "the JOOS" that severed diplomatic relations.

Today’s announcement by the Federal Government to cut diplomatic relations with Iran is an insult to all Canadians of good conscience, who are concerned with the extremist Israeli regime’s ongoing human rights atrocities, its genocidal intent towards the worlds people, its support for international terrorism and its aggressive nuclear ambitions which threaten not just the free world but the entire Western world.


We despise Canada’s move given our duty to alert the public to the stratagems zionist diplomats have been using to infiltrate Canadian institutions, intimidate Canadians and pro-democracy forces, and recruit followers to an agenda of hate, repression and violence.

PS; **** Israel
