The Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) held its Parliamentary Briefing Session on Canada's Iran Policy on Tuesday night. Parliamentarians, political staffers, officials and representatives of several diplomatic missions participated in this session in Ottawa.
Specifically the panel had an extensive discussion on the motion adopted by the House of Commons last week against Iran. We were pleased to have three distinguished experts with us:
Dr. Thomas Juneau: Professor of School of Public and International Affairs, Former Analyst with Canada’s Department of National Defence.
Ms. Peggy Mason: President of Rideau Institute, Former Canada’s Ambassador for Disarmament to the UN.
Dr. Omid Milani: Professor of Law at the University of Ottawa, Member of Human Rights Research and Education Centre.
This is the first briefing session organized by the ICC on Parliament Hill. These briefings are a key opportunity to educate policy makers and their staff about pressing issues for our community. The panel last night was a success based on the positive feedback we received from policymakers who attended the event.
