Canada Shuts Iranian Embassy
 
Today Canada expelled all Iranian diplomats, shuttered the Iranian embassy and suspended diplomatic relations with Iran.

Main reason: Exporting terrorism.

Canadians can walk tall today.

Why now? Has Iran been doing something new/different lately?

While exporting terrorism may be the official reason, they have been pressuring Iranian immigrants to Canada to promote Iranian cultural values in Canada.

High time Quebec got its independence. I wouldn't have said that 2 years ago but I'm more and more in favour of it now. De Gaulle was again right.

University system is totally different. We've noticed that last year.

Even the former Communist countries had their embassies in the West during the Cold War (Even China). So there's no reason for it.

.

It doesn't get independence, it takes it by voting for it. The separatist Parti Quebequois just got elected. So a referendum is in the works. And of course it will be defeated yet again. Quebeckers don't want the handouts from the rest of Canada to stop.

It could be a weird provincial government. One election promise is to to ban all religious symbols in public places - except crucifixes!!!!!!!!!!

Of course, the Toronto Film Festival just opened last night and one of the much anticipated new movies is Ben Afflek's ''ARGO'' a true story about the Canadian Caper, when the Canadian ambassador in Tehran hid six escaped US hostages and then successfully got them out of Iran with Canadian passports.

So maybe this is just a publicity stunt to promote Ben's movie. Somehow I doubt it will be screened in Tehran.

Now if all the other civilized countries could follow the suit.

When Irish freedom fighter Bobby Sands died on hunger strike, President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr sent a message of condolence to the Sands family.[50] The government renamed Winston Churchill Boulevard, the location of the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Tehran, to Bobby Sands Street, prompting the embassy to move its entrance door to Ferdowsi Avenue to avoid using Bobby Sands Street on its letterhead.[51] A street in the Elahieh district is also named after Sands.[52] An official blue and white street sign was affixed to the rear wall of the British embassy compound saying (in Persian) "Bobby Sands Street" with three words of explanation "militant Irish guerrilla".[50][53] The official Pars news agency called Bobby Sands' death "heroic".[50] There have subsequently been claims that the British foreign secretary has pressured Iranian authorities to change the name of Bobby Sands Street but this is denied.[54][55][56]

What are you rambling on about now? Apart from pointing out how the Iranian government spends its time putting up signs. Well, I guess you can do that if the country already is a paradise on earth and all its citizens live a life of bliss under the benevolent supervision of the ayatollahs.
Although I suppose it is time more productively spent than hanging a few gays or adulterers.
If the Iranian government saw Bobby Sands as one like them, then that is not very complimentary to Bobby Sands.

I don't see what it has do do with the subject of this thread, though.
