    It may not be so bad if Iran "attempts" to retaliate. Canada's Grizzlies could use the extra protein.

    It appears friendship is only as strong as the benefit it derives. So as Iran is still pressured economically others are reaping the rewards of be cooperation and respect. However, according to Harper, “Do I anticipate specific actions? No, not necessarily,” Harper said, when discussing possible Iranian reprisals against Canada for having cut diplomatic ties. “But we know this is a country that does not stop at anything. That is just the reality of the situation…Nothing (Iran might do) would surprise me. That is all the more reason why it is essential that our Canadian personnel no longer be present."

    "Canada exported nearly $18 billion in products to China in 2011. China exported $48 billion to Canada. China also invested a record $11 billion in Canada last year. In return, Canada invested $4.6 billion in China." It looks like business as usual.

    OK...I dont think it will happen and dont want it to happen...but...lets say on a computer generated scale, Id kinda like to see a war between Canada and Iran. It might be the first no-casualty war in history.

    Iran has mishandled every relationship that have had this is the price and they can do nothing of consequence about it.

    Iran controls the two largest and most orginized terrorist units in the world, so it's not at all unrealistic for Iran to launch a terrorist attack in side Canadian borders.

    And, that's exactly the attitude that the Canadian government take towards this threat.
