Canada vows to keep up sanctions against Iran “full force”

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird, said he was “deeply skeptical” of the newly brokered nuclear deal with Iran, adding that Canada’s sanctions will remain in “full force” against the country.

“We will evaluate the deal reached not just on the merits of its words but more importantly, on its verifiable implementation,” Baird said at a news conference in Ottawa on Sunday, according to CBC.

He said that because previous Iranian leaders had made hostile comments toward Israel, “we’re deeply skeptical of the deal and the work that’s brought us to this stage.”

Baird declared that Canada will maintain sanctions against Iran, including restrictions on financial transactions, a ban on bilateral trade (worth about $135 million) and no Iranian diplomatic representation in Canada. Read more

    Yael, I am glad that your cousin decided to go to school in Canada and to stay there permanently! No place is perfect but Canada is better than most, and they are a true friend of justice. Not all their leaders are so good….that crack-smoking mayor of Toronto! Good grief, what a mess he is!

    It seems the Canadians still know right from wrong and a good deal from a sucker’s deal. Too bad we can’t say the same for Obama.

      Mike, I agree with you; the political leadership in Canada right now seems to have the sense and courage to state their opinions. I am grateful for that. I am no conspiracy theorist, but I wonder if all of Obama’s actions in the Middle East are mainly to support Islamic extremists (and to undermine the security and safety of Israel, as just part of his warped philosophy.) His actions are going to have the effect of empowering dangerous regimes.

    The genius of the obama junta is on full display. By making an agreement that actually did NOTHING but endanger Yisrael and our few arab “allies”, obama hamashiach and his underlings may boast of their diplomatic prowess to a fawning media and worshipping low information voters. Canada has guts and are a true friend of Yisrael.obama claims to be Christian,that he is an apostate muslim. I wonder is the Jesus he claims, Yeshua or Messiah Isa of the quran? They arent the same person. Just as allah/ar rahman is NOT YHWH. Praises to Canada for seeing thru the taqquiya.
