Even the Liberals voted for the Conservative-sponsored motion, in a repudiation of the Trudeau federal executive’s previous plan to strengthen ties with Iran.
The House of Commons has voted in favour of a Conservative motion that called on the government to abandon the restoration of diplomatic relations in Iran.
The vote was a big repudiation of Trudeau’s earlier plans to restore ties with the Iranian regime. And making it even more surprising, Trudeau and the Liberal MPs in the House of Commons voted in favour of their own repudiation.
It’s a big reversal for the Trudeau government, and it’s a big success for the Conservatives to have put a stop to restoration of relations with the pro-terrorist Iranian regime.
The vote comes not long after Iran’s Supreme Leader made a horrendous tweet calling Israel a “cancer” and calling for genocide against Israel. That tweeted generated massive outrage, making it impossible for the government to have pushed for deeper ties with Iran without significant backlash.
Of course, voting for the motion and actually taking real steps to distance Canada from Iran are two different things, and considering the rampant dishonesty of the Trudeau government it will take more than words for people to trust what’s happening.
As Candice Bergen said on Twitter, “Today the Libs voted in support of our motion which would designate the IRGC as a listed terrorist entity in Canada. This requires immediate action – not lip service. Trudeau must act now!”
