"Iran is among the world's worst violators of human rights. It shelters and materially supports terrorist groups. ... Canada’s position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today."He's not wrong, eh? Canada is as of September 7 formally listing Iran and Syria as state sponsors of terrorism under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act. More here (in English and French) from Canadian PM Stephen Harper. Iran's reaction is unsurprising, right down to accusing Canada of being racist and also being Israel's puppet. Whatever, as Baird specifically called out Iran for its anti-Semitism and incitement to genocide. (The Israelis have expressed thanks to Canada for the decision, something done also by various human rights groups. Here's a quote from Netanyahu.)
On a more personal note: the response from an astonished Alessandra was "OMG!!! Go Canada!" Second that.
