Senator Linda Frum defies mullahs’ lobby, supports a #FreeIran

For 10 days, Conservative Canadian Senator Linda Frum has come under attack by the lobby of the Iranian regime in Canada for speaking in support of Bill S-219 (Non-nuclear Sanctions Against Iran Act) which targets the Iranian regime and its Revolutionary Guards for human rights abuses, including the 1988 massacre of political prisoners, and acts of international terrorism. Majid Jowhari, an Iranian-Canadian MP and a well-known apologist of the regime in Parliament (who both travels to Iran and attempts to invite the regime’s ‘lawmakers’ to Canada) and the Iranian Canadian Congress (the regime’s main lobby in Canada) carried out a coordinated campaign claiming she was speaking against the people of Iran — an extremely bogus charge given that she was demanding the regime be censured for carrying out human rights abuses against its people. Since the attacks on Senator Frum began, she has received overwhelming support, including on Twitter, by fellow Canadian lawmakers and members of the exiled Iranian community who long to see a future free and democratic Iran.
