"OTTAWA—Canada has closed its embassy in Tehran and kicked out Iranian diplomats from Canada as it formally declared Iran a state sponsor of terrorism.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird made the moves Friday morning, declaring Iran “the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.”

The federal government is also urging Canadians to avoid travel to Iran."

It's about time.

No civilized country should recognise the Iranian islamofascist regime as legitimate.

Let's see how long they last when the world completely turns their back on them.

Better late than never, this should have happened a long time ago.

Now they should do the same with the KSA, Pakistan and the rest of these islamofascist states until they join the 21st century.

We should stop supporting these countries with blasphemy laws in all ways, including putting a freeze on immigration from them.

Pakistan harbored some of those who help kill/injure our Cdn and other NATO troops. They're still doing it today.

When we were at war with Nazis in WW2, did we welcome thousands of them openly like we do with islam today? We have groups today and or/those who support a cultural demise of our country and heritages and wish for a global dominance unto their god.

When you have a group like Hizb ut Tahrir allowed(and others) to hold a conference in Canada(and the US, Britain etc)who wish for the death of capitalism and the rise of islam, who preach anti-west ideologies and who hope for a cultural jihad on us, you have to ask why are/were our guys fighting people overseas who believe the same thing? They're fighting the most violent kind over there and we are letting the ideological and cultural one exist and thrive here.

Time for big changes!

Expect some on the liberal and left side to say this is not the way to go....diplomacy must work.

Iran doese nothing for us except sponsor terrorism(Iranian agents caught in Thailand, Kenya....Hezbollah, other groups), has supplied weapons to the taliban, and hates the most democratic nation in the middle east who happens to be our friend.

Has anything changed the last 20 yrs with these hairy unibrow moon cultists?

F them. Get out. Good job Harper.

The UK, France, Germany and other should do the same.

That was definitely a wrong move that will only further exacerbate relations. Not a good idea.

How long the western counries to tolerate?his is the wisest decision Canada has taken and other countries too have to follow-ParticularlyEgypt which persecutes it's Copts and Pakistan.which persecutes minorities.In a surprise move Friday, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced that Canada was closing its embassy in Tehran and expelling Iranian diplomats from Canada as it formally declared Iran a state sponsor of terrorism.

Baird branded Iran as the “most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.”

He cited a list of long-standing beefs with the regime in Tehran as justification for the abrupt move, including Iranian military assistance to Syria and its refusal to comply with United Nations resolutions on its nuclear program.

“It routinely threatens the existence of Israel and engages in racist anti-Semitic rhetoric and incitement to genocide; it is among the world’s worst violators of human rights,” Baird told reporters in Vladivostok, Russia.

Pressed on why Canada decided to act now on grievances it’s had for months and years, Baird said only,“There’s just a long list of reasons why we’re coming to this decision.”

But he said the main motivation was an attack on the British embassy in Tehran nine months ago and worries that Canadian diplomats were in danger.

“It just got to a point where we just are very uncomfortable putting their lives at risk, and I’ll tell you ... this is a decision obviously we don’t take lightly,” said Baird as he arrived in the Russian city for a meeting of APEC leaders.

What relations? Similar to those that the UK had with Iran?

There is a lot we do not know about what was coming out of the Iranian politico's in Ottawa and elsewhere. Perhaps we never will.

I agree, letting ideologies which oppose our core beliefs operate under our flag is a joke.

Multiculturalism is, among other things, never saying "you're wrong" so as not to hurt the tender sensibilities of those who wish to spread their intolerance and view on others.

What kind of relations should we have with a regime that imposes death penalties for converting away from Islam?

Or calls for the destruction of their neighbor?

Or puts people to death for being gay?

Pretending those things don't abhor us to be friends is as hypocritical as it gets.
