That is NOT what the people at the protest here have been calling for:

It's the media, not your Montreal protestors, who are urging further violence and laying the grounds for foreign intervention, agree.   Did this rally have any suggested actions for the Canadian government?   And if you had your choice what could the Canadian government do, or what could individual Canadians do to help the people of Iran?  

I don't mean this as a challenge.   I can't think of any positive role Canada could conceivably play here but I'd rather be wrong about that.

UNSC Meeting On Iran Directly Interferes With Iran's Sovereignty - Moscow (and vid)

"Russia's deputy foreign minister has slammed the US for calling an emergency UN Security Council meeting following instability in Iran, accusing Washington of fomenting unrest and destabilizing the government. Ryabkov earlier told RIA news agency that the US is using the demonstrations on a 'pretext ' to review the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The international agreement was also approved by Russia, China, France, the UK, Germany and the EU."

I believe lagatta4 does have a point in this. I have met people from Iran who were threatened by the religious extreme government. So I believe it's an serious issue in that part of the world. However this is an issue only the Iranian peoples can resolve. If western countries get involved in any way, it will only strengthen the religious extremes.

Good question. I was on the front line of this protest. I merely came away with deep bruises from the police armour while being pushe d back in this scene.  The black bloc were vilified because they stood to protect the Grandmothers.

Why There Won't Be A Revolution in Iran  -  by Pepe Escobar

http://www.atimes.com/article/wont-revolution-revolution-iran/

"Legitimate protests have been hijacked by the usual suspects. Regime change is unlikely but what is in play is setting the stage for a further renewal of economic sanctions. Anyway, Tehran is already gearing up to increase business across Eurasia through China's new Silk Roads, the Belt and Road Initiative, and the Eurasia Economic Union. In the end it's up to Team Rouhani to be creative in alleviating the burdens on the economic front."

Iran Will Retaliate. Get Over It.

http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/iran-will-retaliate-get-over-it-120...

"Any further restraint in responding to Israeli aggression will only encourage more violations against Iran and Iranians. Despite years of western propaganda, media misinformation and repeated Israeli threats, Iran has never threatened to initiate military conflict with Israel. However, the beleagured and self-serving Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanayahu, has now miscalculated and made a grave mistake."

This thread and the Syrian war thread are going to criss cross. 

Iran does have troops and military mech in Syria. They have and will engage the Israel incursion into Syria. Already an Israeli f-16 was downed in February. And from the recent show of anti missile force shown by the Syrian military, I believe Iran is now more bold in the face of Israeli illegal incursions and will retaliate

Israel points out that Iran is lying about having nuclear weapons. And with a straight face.

Rev Pesky

Huge coverage of Netanyahu's presentation about Iran's nuclear weapons. Most criticized the performance, but not one single reporter brought up the actually existing Israeli nuclear weapons. Or Mordechai Vanunu.

Thanks very much for that clip of Netanyahu being grilled on Israeli nuclear weapons by CNN. That is the only example I've seen so far, but it's certainly welcome. The questioner could have gone on and asked whether Israel would be okay with the same inspection regime that Iran has, but perhaps I'm asking too much.

US Judge Orders Iran to Pay Billions to Families of 9/11 Victims

"Tehran has been ordered by a US court to pay more than $6 billion to victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, despite the fact that most of the plane hijackers were Saudi nationals, and no direct link was ever found to Iran..."

Of course they're morons which is why our politicians do whatever America wants.
