Canada Stands Up to Iran

by Clifford D. May

This just in:

Canadian Minister of Heritage James Moore has vowed that a screening of the documentary film Iranium will soon take place at the National Archives following the cancelation of the film’s screening earlier this week. The Iranian embassy was behind requests to cancel the Tuesday screening. …

“This movie will be shown, the agreement will be kept and this movie Iranium will be shown at Library and Archives Canada. We will not be moving it to a different facility, we’re not bending to any pressure,” said Mr. Moore.

“People need to be kept safe, but we don’t back down to people who try to censor people by threats of violence.”

“Canada does not accept attempts from the Iranian Embassy to dictate what films will and will not be shown in Canada,” Mr. Moore added.
