Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this clip from CTV News:

As you may know I am shocked and horrified that my beloved Canada has been drawn into this fetid, stinking mire of the mideast. The Iranian Embassy has asked to recruit 2nd generation Iran-Canadians to their beloved Iran. Barf. Our government via John Baird, has responded harshly, but gee, if even our RCMP,u can't say Muslim or Islam, how can you respond harshly to the Islamic Republic of Iran? Should I laugh...or should I cry? I say let's listen to a wonderful, beautiful and courageous young woman, who lucky for him, just married our Defense Minister Peter MacKay. Nazanin Afshin-Jam called on Canada to shut down the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa. Sometimes Canadians just have to marry up.
