Iran Uses Quebec To Deflect Canada's Human Rights Criticism
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/10/22/iran-quebec-canada-baird_n_2002523.html

QUEBEC - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird abandoned host-country niceties Monday as he levelled a blistering attack against the human rights records of Iran, Syria and Uganda before some 1,400 international parliamentarians gathered for the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Quebec.

Iranian and Ugandan delegates at the IPU assembly, including the African nation's Speaker of Parliament, protested Baird's remarks, accusing the minister of meddling in their sovereign affairs at a collegial forum.

Even though the Conservative government has cut off diplomatic relations with Iran and Syria in particular, it could do little to stop the presence of legislators from those countries at the 127th conference of the IPU, which Canada is hosting this year.
