Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre quietly traveled to Iran, where he signed a groundbreaking agreement with the terrorist-funding rogue regime to “boost mutual cooperation in various fields.”
The agreement was signed by Mayor of Tehran Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and President of the Board of Directors of Metropolis Denis Coderre.
Qalibaf is an influential state-jihadist who has climbed the ranks of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was also a candidate in the 2005 Iranian presidential election, in which he was beaten by Ahmadinejad.
“Qalibaf highlighted Tehran’s close ties with Metropolis over the past two decades”; a troubling fact, compounded by the lack of Canadian media coverage about Coderre — the mayor of Canada’s second largest city — cozying up to Iran.
Coderre has also been lenient in cracking down on the spread of jihadist sentiments in his city. Following the jihad attack in Brussels, Coderre’s counterpart, the Mayor of Quebec City, Régis Labeaume — stated that greater scrutiny of mosques was needed; but Coderre shot down Labeaume’s idea, calling it “profiling.” Coderre also denied that jihad messages are being spread from mosques, but he blamed only the Internet for such messages.
Recently, the Toronto Star newspaper revealed a critical report about a study that exposed that jihadist doctrine was being spread at Islamic schools and mosques in Canada. These Islamic institutions were found to be “filled with extremist literature.”
“Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre travelled to Iran to sign an agreement of cooperation with the Mayor of Tehran in early October”, Point de Bascule Canada, October 11, 2016:
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Municipality of Tehran and Metropolis, the World Association of Major Metropolises, signed an agreement in Iran’s capital on Sunday to boost mutual cooperation in various fields.
The agreement was signed by Mayor of Tehran Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and President of the Board of Directors of Metropolis Denis Coderre, at a ceremony at Tehran’s Milad Tower on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters, Qalibaf highlighted Tehran’s close ties with Metropolis over the past two decades, expressing the hope that the new agreement would result in stronger cooperation with the association.
Pointing to the presence of Mr. Coderre in Tehran, who is also mayor of Montreal, Qalibaf hoped that Tehran’s Municipality could find ways to promote cooperation with the Canadian city in the municipal and cultural affairs.
Tehran Municipality has been member of Metropolis since 1992 and has participated in most of its past programs…..
