Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada is using the most powerful tools at its disposal to crack down on Iran’s brutal regime.
Trudeau announced tough new immigration measures he says will mean more than 10-thousand members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard will be permanently barred from Canada.
Meantime a Vancouver-based immigration lawyer says he fears the federal government’s announcement on banning entry for senior members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard will harm Iranians already living in Canada.
Richard Kurland says it could put Iranians in Canada into a dragnet, making it hard to re-enter the country or even move within it.
More details on the move are expected later this week.
