Good for HM Government! HM Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Canadian delegation walked on the un speech of the rabid anti semite from Iran.
NEW YORK — Canadian diplomats at the United Nations, including Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon, boycotted a speech Tuesday by the president of Iran.
In recent years Canadian officials, along with those from other Western nations, have made a show of walking out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad whenever he addresses the UN General Assembly.
It's meant as a form of protest against Iran's human rights record and controversial nuclear program.
"Past speeches by the Iranian president in UN fora have contained elements of Holocaust denial, anti-Semitism and condemnation of Israel," Cannon said in a statement.
