Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Condemnation of Ahmadinejad’s remarks

[26 October, 2005]

Right Hon. Paul Martin (Prime Minister, Lib.): [ ]

“I just want to speak on behalf of all Canadians in vigorously condemning the remarks that were made by Iran’s president. This is the 21st century and Canada will never accept such hatred, such intolerance and anti-Semitism of that kind. We believe that kind of an example does not reflect the opinion of the Iranian people. It certainly does not reflect the opinion of the Canadian people, and we vigorously condemn what the Iranian president said.
