The note on Iran’s Ottawa embassy door reads:

“Due to the hostile decision by the government of Canada, the embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Ottawa is closed and has no choice but to stop providing any consular services for its dear citizens.”  PressTV (1)

Ottawa’s severance of ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran has shocked the Canadian and international communities.

Canada’s tradition is to be one of the last countries to leave in a crisis, not the first.¨  John Mundy, Canada’s last ambassador to Iran
