We have been informed that the Conservatives are planning to propose a motion in the House of Commons today trying to block the path of diplomacy with Iran. The drafted motions includes two unacceptable points:

- The motion calls on the Government of Canada to abandon any discussion or negotiations with Iran about reestablishing diplomatic relations.

- It blames Iran for the violence in Gaza border. Since March 2018 the Israeli forces have killed 135 Palestinians and injured thousands in violent clashes happening in the Gaza border. The Conservatives are trying to blame Iran for this violence! 

The Iranian Canadian Congress strongly believes that sanctions and isolation will not help the Iranian people. It's through constructive engagement, diplomacy and dialogue that we will be able to help Iranians and promote peace and stability in the region.

The ICC is committed to protecting and promoting the interests of Iranian-Canadians. We ask you to join us in standing up to the Conservative leadership that tries to advance anti-Iranian policies to further harm Iranian people and Iranian-Canadians.

CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT

Calling the office of your Member of Parliament (MP) is the most effective way to communicate your message with her/him. 

  • Review suggested talking points we have provided below. 
  • Call your MP's office and communicate your points with his/her office staff. 
  • Kindly ask the office staffers to tell your MP about your opinion and your views.

Here is the script we suggest you follow for your call:

Hello,

My name is _______ and I live in your riding. As a constituent I would like to ask my MP to vote against the Conservatives’ motion on Iran. I urge them to instead support diplomacy and engagement with Iran.

Over the years, the lack of diplomatic relations and closure of embassies have negatively affected Iranian-Canadians.

I hope that my MP takes this into account and I will be following up with the developments and the vote in Parliament later today.


Thank you.

Make your call count, tell us how it went
