Canada Not Making Informed Decisions Canada Not Making Informed Decisions

The decision by the Canadian government to reverse its stated goal of improving strained relations with Iran was influenced by the Israeli lobby, says a legal expert who believes that Tehran does not pose any threat to the North American country. 
Radical groups supporting Israel in Canada have spared no effort in preventing the resumption of Tehran-Ottawa diplomatic relations, Edward C. Corrigan, a Canadian lawyer and specialist in citizenship, immigration law and refugee protection, told IRNA in an interview on Sunday. 
On June 12, the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sided with an opposition motion in parliament demanding that Ottawa "immediately cease all negotiations or discussions" on restoring diplomatic relations with Iran, according to news reports. 
Corrigan criticized Canadian officials' unrealistic stance on Iran, saying that European countries are more realistic and appreciate the importance of having relations with the Islamic Republic.
