Canadian Embassy Will Not Take In Injured

The Canadian Embassy Emergency Hotline in Ottawa says that they will not take in Iranian citizens and that they never take in foreign nationals unless in ‘extreme’ situations (seemed to imply on an individual basis). The spokewoman said that they will be accepting Canadian citizens (obviously, they are the Canadian Embassy).

While this may be subject to change it still confirms CTV reports that currently Canada will not be open to injured Iranians.

It should also be noted that when I cited reports of other embassies taking in injured people she said that there were no official reports of any foreign embassies taking injured Iranians. From what we have heard from many eye witnesses today there has been asylum given to the wounded, if but temporary, by many nation’s embassies.

This comes amid many  Canadian citizens petitioning Prime Minster Harper to open the embassy in Tehran to injured Iranians. Information about that petition, as well as a link to the petition itself can be found here:
