    While the British embassy would have been enough it is so much more than that. No country that supports democratic values could ever have any effective or worthwhile relationship with a country like Iran.

"By doing so, Iran makes it virtually impossible for government of Canada officials to provide consular assistance to Iranian-Canadians in difficulty."
    Most of them came here before the revolution so them and especially their children feel no connection to Iran in anyway and couldn't care less what Canada's policy stance on it is.

    Canada's stance is based upon protecting it's citizenry, moreover it is there responsibility regardless of what people may or may not feel. Nevertheless, on what do you base this statement upon.

    I remember hearing something about it on Q with Gian Gomeshi who is an Iranian-Canadian on CBC Radio back when a bank was discriminating against them.

    Russia and China have some big choices to make! Do they want to be part of the West? If so they must seize support of nations like Iran and Syria, just dont understand Russias stance right now.

    Yes I do he was the what most believe to be the first to espouse human rights in his "Cyrus Cylinder" in circa 539.
