Imagine for a second that a white female photojournalist with dual U.S. - Canadian citizenship went to a city in the United States and photographed an anti-government student rally. Then was detained by the American government, was raped, beaten, and ultimately murdered by government thugs because of the reporting she had done on the rally.
Just imagine the outrage that would spread, deservedly so, like wild fire across Canada if such an event were to happen. The Liberal party and most of the population would be screaming bloody murder, Liberal MPs and the media would vilify the Americans to no end.
That outrage would also be multiplied several times if the government choose to sit on its hands and do nothing in response to the news that one of our citizens died at the hands of a foreign government. The government would have to act or they would be held responsible by the voters.
With that picture clearly in your head, what would you think might happen if a women of Persian decent, with dual Iranian - Canadian citizenship were to be killed and raped by a foreign dictatorship? My guess would be not near as much would come of it. Why do you think that is?
