Canoe Live sat down with Morteza Abdolalian, an exiled journalist from Iran who is now a member of Journalists in Exile, to tell us how Iranian-Canadians are shedding light on the situation in Iran.In response to the violence, Adolalian says that yesterday’s protest claimed the lives of at least eight people and that many, including journalists and political dissidents were jailed for their support against the election process. He also raised concerns over the filter of information, saying that the government has banned SMS and mobile service in some areas. Although some forms of communication have been restricted, Morteza says that he relies on the internet to find out what is going on in his country. This past weekend Morteza says that Toronto’s Iranian community came out in numbers to condemn the elections with many echoing the phrase, "Where is my vote?" While most protestors were in support of denouncing Iran’s elections, there were a few who were in support of Iran’s current president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
