Canadians Walk Out on Ahmadinejad at UN – US Officials Stay Put

The Canadians walked out on Iranian regime president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today at the United Nations.
CTV reported:

Canadian diplomats at the United Nations have boycotted a speech by the president of Iran, a spokeswoman for Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon said Tuesday.

Western diplomats, including those from Canada, have in recent years made a show of walking out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad whenever he addresses the UN General Assembly.

Catherine Loubier, spokeswoman for Cannon, says the boycott was intended as a protest against Iran’s human rights record and controversial nuclear program.

Ahmadinejad told the assembly that capitalism is facing defeat and is calling for an overhaul of the “undemocratic and unjust” global decision-making bodies.
