Good for Canada. The Canadian leaders are showing what our President and most democrats in the USA are seriously lacking...a backbone.
More like Canadian hypocrisy.
Canada and it's allies the US and Saudi Arabia are guilty of destabilizing and destroying more countries, killing more people and creating more terrorists in doing so in the 14 years of the "war on terror" than Iran has in 100 years.
Strange how the same countries that systematically use violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims the most can get away with calling other nations "terrorist states".

U.S. and Its Coalition of Mid-East Dictators Kill 13 Times More Yemeni Civilians than Al Qaeda
Armed U.S. Drones Alone Killed Twice As Many As Al Qaeda …
A new report from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (UNCHR) documents the number of civilian deaths in Yemen over the year-long period between July 1, 2014 to June 30 of this year.
< snip >
The U.S. is the only nation flying armed drones in Yemen.
Adding up the numbers, approximately 304 civilians were killed by the U.S. and other coalition members in the past year … 13 times more than killed by Al Qaeda during the same period.
And there were twice as many civilians killed by armed U.S. drones alone than by Al Qaeda during this period.
Whew! Good thing we’re the good guys.
