July 13, 2012 22:00

Canada is keeping tabs on the Iranian embassy to ensure that diplomats do not "interfere with the liberties" of Iranian-Canadian civilians, the National Post quoted Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird as saying Friday after allegations surfaced that Iran was using its embassy to recruit ethnic Iranians.

“Canada has taken a very tough stance against the regime in Tehran and we won’t allow them to disrupt the freedom and liberties of Canadians of Iranian origin,” Baird said.
