- Prime Minister of Canada
As you are well aware, Iran’s fraudulent presidential election result has undermined democracy, diminished rule of law, and destroyed the will of Iranian people who voted for change. The peaceful demonstration to demand a fair election was confronted with attacking demonstrators, arresting political activists, firing at the crowd, destroying student dormitories in major cities in Iran, and even killing a protestor to intimidate and suppress the will of the majority to change Ahmadinejad’s government.
The rigged election does not provide any legitimate basis for a government to take form. Therefore, based on the universal values all democratic nations share, we, the undersigned Canadian citizens and residents, expect the international community to decline to recognize Mr. Ahmadinejad as the president and representative of Iranians. Furthermore, we urge you to put pressure on Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, to accept international oversight on a re-election in order to settle this serious matter peacefully and democratically.
The rigged election does not provide any legitimate basis for a government to take form. Based on the universal values all democratic nations share, We, the undersigned Canadian citizens and residents, believe it is the responsibility of our Canadian government not to recognize Mr. Ahmadinejad as the president of Islamic Repulic of Iran until a free and fair election with International oversight takes place.
We would also like to ask your Excellency to raise serious concern regarding any form of state violence in response to the peaceful demonstration of the protesters who are entitled to their right of peaceful dissent.
