Dr. Amir Kahdir , a neurologist
, an Iranian Quebec Canadian socialist  


Amir Kahdir was the most
popular politician in
before the students protest . Amir Khadir supported the cause of students.   He also tirelessly fought for the construction
corruption Mafia _government shady alliance which pushed Jean Charest to accept
the inquiry which leads to one arrest for now.

Israeli lobby in Quebec tried behind to prevent Amir Khadir from re-election
for his stand on Palestinian human rights which are systematically abused by
the Israeli governments ,the violation of the Palestinian rights which some of
them has been condemned by The UN in the past and ignored by the Israel
Government  .

Amir Khadir has always stands on the side of Iranian people by condemnig the violation of Human rights in iran  



after the interviews we tried to reach to party Quebec rally for the victory of Mrs. Paulin Marois at 57 St. Cathrine . when we got there , the street closed down by police for the shooting . we heard that the terrorist was the attacker was shouting " wake of English Canada , there were two injured which one victim died later on .
Wed Morning we went to the crime scene . police still was investigating . there were tens of police cruise and command post. there was no word if the attacker has acted alone or it was an organized crime by a group of anti separation .
however, the violent action of the person is condemned , while PM, NDP leader and Liberal leader has issued statement , there is some question raising on the future of Quebec and Canada to seek non violence and democratic ways to negotiate the differences and to stay in Canada.

a real question is why the police could not be tipped off in advanced on a such sensitive voting day in Canadian history to prevent the man from his violence and terrorist act which will have a lot of negative consequences in the Quebec politics and Canadian politics , too

You are very welcome

Actually Mr Khadir and his wife and also Mrs Shokraee, are good friends. Very great and integrated people who are the strongest icons of the Iranian community  in Montreal.

But I, and my whole family have voted for Mr Charest.

Quebec will never go nowhere without the "Liberals". Charest departure from the Quebec political scene, is a loss we deplore strongly.

Good luck.


thanks for the correction

This is not the first time that you pronounce the name of the persons , wrongly! Learn first, what/who you are talking about, at least!
