No Freedom?

So the embassy of an adversarial government can block the screening of a documentary film in a "free" country? Well, apparently they did. The Iranian regime's embassy blocks the documentary screening in Ottawa.

This is unacceptable in a free country and the Canadian government must answer why they can not guarantee the safety of a film festival and its attendants. Quite shameful!
