Canada will boycott Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at the United Nations today, saying his outbursts about the Holocaust and Israel are “shameful.”
Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon will be at the world body to attend the opening of the UN General Assembly’s annual debate, but officials signal he and other members of the Canadian delegation will vacate when the Islamic republic’s president approaches the podium.
“He uses his public appearances to provoke the international community, and that is why Canada’s seats will be empty.”
Why can’t our administration?
I’m still in shock that the despotic dictator of Iran, who called for the murder of Iranian protests over the summer, a man whose speech against Israel is hypocritically not classified as “hate speech” by liberals, is even welcome on our soil.
