Independent MP Kevin Vuong called out the federal government during Monday’s question period for what he said was its “pathetic” response to foreign interference by Iran and China. Vuong said Canada has become a “doormat for foreign interference.” His comments came as Conservative MP Melissa Lantsman called on the government to specifically label Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) a terrorist organization after the Ontario Superior Court found the IRGC was a “listed entity” due to one of its branches, the Qods Force, being designated a terrorist entity by Canada.
