Once again, the Trudeau government refuses to stand up for our country.
Canadian-Iranian professor Kavous Seyed-Emami recently died in an Iranian prison after being jailed by the ruthless Islamist theocratic dictatorship.
He had apparently been arrested on espionage charges, but the regime never even officially announced his arrest, and have not given details on his death, aside from claiming that he killed himself.
That’s a doubtful claim considering the number of people who die in the custody of Iran’s regime.
He certainly would not have been the first innocent person to suffer under the dictatorship.
After his death, the Trudeau government (who are appallingly trying to strengthen ties with Iran’s regime), claimed they were outraged.
Yet, as Conservative MP Erin O’Toole noted, the Trudeau Liberals failed to back up that outrage with even symbolic measures:
The Conservative caucus fully supported the Liberal motion condemning the Russian nerve agent attack on British residents. Seconds later the Liberals rejected our motion condemning the Iranian government for the detention & death of a Canadian citizen. #sunnyways

This is disgusting.
It means that the Trudeau government is willing to condemn an alleged attack on non-Canadians, yet when it comes to condemning the Iranian regime for a Canadian citizen dying in their custody – they reject it.
Senator Linda Frum summed it up well:

“Contemptible” aptly describes how the Trudeau government has refused to stand up for Canadians, whether it’s their refusal to stop ISIS fighters from returning, their selling us out to China, their weakening of our defences, and their payments to people who hate our nation.
Trudeau’s contempt for the principles of freedom upon which our nation is founded, and his contempt for the Canadian people is becoming more and more obvious, and the decision by the Trudeau Liberals to vote against condemning Iran is yet another reason the Liberals need to be punished at election time.
