Bijan Ahmadi at the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee on behalf of the Iranian Canadian Congress speaking about Canada-Iran relations and proposed bill S-219:
On Feb 9, 2017 Bijan Ahmadi and Pouyan Tabasinejad presented their views opposing the “Non-Nuclear Sanctions Against Iran Act” before the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. The proposed bill by Senator Tkachuk will create barriers in the path of re-engagement between Canada and Iran. By adding additional legal and bureaucratic complexities, this bill will negatively affect honest and hard-working Iranian Canadians who have suffered so much since the previous federal government under PM Harper implemented the policy of sanctions and isolation against Iran.
