A Canadian U-Turn on Iran? by Tom Quiggin


Most alarming to the U.S., however, has been Trudeau's position on Iran, where the regime seems to want to increase its influence in Canada due to its proximity to the U.S. Trudeau has been enabling this penetration. He allowed Tehran to re-open its embassy in Canada. He has already lifted Canadian sanctions against Iran, and his government has downgraded its travel warnings to citizens wishing to go there, despite ongoing arrests and torture of Canadians and others. In the run-up to his election, Trudeau told a Khomeinist newspaper with Hezbollah sympathies that he would have a special immigration program for Muslims.
