    OTTAWA – The Harper government sent a diplomatic note to Iran Wednesday, as Heritage Minister James Moore lashed out at Tehran for its part in a campaign that cancelled the screening of a movie critical of the Iranian regime at Library and Archives Canada.
    On Wednesday morning, the Minister instructed Library and Archives Canada to show Iranium, a documentary critiquing Iran’s nuclear program, after it cowed to numerous threats of protest and an official request from the Iranian embassy in Canada to not present the film Tuesday night, as scheduled.
    In its diplomatic note to Tehran, the government said Canada is a free country and that freedom of expression is a core value that won’t be compromised.
    “This movie will be shown, the agreement will be kept and this movie Iranium will be shown at Library and Archives Canada. We will not be moving it to a different facility, we’re not bending to any pressure,” said Mr. Moore on the CBC’s Power and Politics.
    “People need to be kept safe, but we don’t back down to people who try to censor people by threats of violence.”

    There have been incidences over the years of Muslim fanatics attempting to squelch free speech in Canada, and being successful, unfortunately.

    "Short Time"

    Examples of his Stephen Harper's dominance are everywhere you look.

    The giant public service bureaucracy that was Liberal dominated has been brought under his wing through a vetting system that effectively gagged the bureaucrats. For the foreign service, it’s been much the same. Major control restructuring.

    He inherited a Liberal dominated Senate but now has a Conservative majority due to his patronage appointments as well as backdoor retirements. He has the media, which once disliked him now fawning on him.

    The vulnerability of a minority government has allowed Mr. Harper to impose such discipline over his formerly unruly caucus that the party is now likened to a garrison structure whose members click their heels at his every utterance.

    During Mr. Harper’s minority, he has put together a fund raising operation that dwarfs those of his opponents and gives him broad advantage over the Liberals.

    The story of his first five years has been less in policy making than in taking over control of the infrastructure of power in a way that few prime ministers ever have and in a way that, should he win the next election convincingly, he could be invincible.

    I see a majority win and I believe it will not be polled correctly. I think more than a few Liberals will vote Conservative just to see what kind of majority Stephen will bring about.

    The Liberals are no longer scared of Stephen. Their Leaders are indeed. So much so that they do not call elections on his minority government. He will call the next election.

    He has more than power. He has an integrity that is seen in the Western world as high leadership potential. With the world moving to a conservatism to deal with the extremism it is entirely possible that Prime Minister Stephen Harper will win a majority.

    Regarding a "Short Time".

    Well, Lester B. Pearson was the Prime Minister of Canada who drafted the UN Partition Plan for Israel. He also was instrumental in fighting the already growing Muslim block.

    Good on Canada.
