Canada FM Baird "declares solidarity" with Iranian political prisoners

This is a classic example of Canada's "talk big, do little" approach to international affairs under the Harper regime.

Baird is declaring solidarity with hundreds of prisoners in Iran, who are victims of that government's "determination to use the courts and prisons as tools of repression".

Had the bumbling blow-hard kept Canada's embassy in Tehran open, he would be able to do more than declare solidarity!

Luckily, our embassy in Israel remains open, so I presume that Baird is working feverishly behind the scenes for the release of the thousands of Palestinians in Israel's jails, also a country known for its determination to use the courts and prisons as tools of repression.
