Honorable member for Aurora Oak Ridges, Richmond Hill.
Thank you Mr. Speaker. We must not forget the name, Mahsa Amini, or the Cry Women Life Freedom Mahsa Amini. A young Iranian woman arrested for not wearing her hijab properly. Died in a hospital in Teheran exactly two months ago today. Eyewitnesses and leaked medical reports indicate she was severely beaten.
Her death sparks an uprising that has resulted in the killing of at least 326 people, including 43 children and 25 women, and the imprisonment of more than 15,000 protestors by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Court.
Canada is horrified. I am horrified by the regime's blatant disregard for women's rights and human rights.
Canada has designated the Islamic Republic of Iran as a regime that is engaged terrorism. In systematic and gross human rights violation. The regime and its most senior officials, including the I R G C, tens of thousands of people will be banned from entering Canada. And current and former senior officials present here will be investigated and removed from the country.
I am proud of the decisive and far reaching steps. Our government is continuing to take.
Zan. Zendegi. Azadi.
