Canada Stands Up to Iran on Film Showing

By Barry Rubin

Well, that's more like it! The Canadian government orders the showing of a film on Iran's nuclear program previously cancelled due to threats.


The Canadian government even sent a diplomatic note to Tehran saying that Canada is a free country and that freedom of expression is a core value that won’t be compromised. “People need to be kept safe, but we don’t back down to people who try to censor people by threats of violence.”

Wow, I mean this is great and heroic. But shouldn't it be normal for European and the U.S. government also?
