PRESS RELEASE by three Iranian Canadian NGOs on ICC
We ,under signed, as Iranian Canadian NGOs would like to express our serious concern with regard to organization registered as Iranian Canadian congress , I.C.C.
Here are some key remarks with respect to I.C.C you may want to be aware of, according to I.C.C organization in May 2015, the number of members of I.C.C is just 1507 . and 890 members participated in the voting process and the election.
We take the opportunity to welcome 4 new board of Directors who are elected on May 24 -2015 with 502 votes.
On the other hand, the informal population of Iranian community in Canada is around 300,000 , which Ontario including GTA by itself holds 150,000 of Iranian population.
Having said that, an organization with a few hundred members and some undemocratic ally appointed board of Directors from GTA with political agenda neither have been nor will be the Representative of Iranian community.
We urge you to RESPECT IRANIAN COMMUNITY MULTIPLE VOICE AND WALK OF LIFE . We certainly demand I.C.C board of directors neither for nor claim themselves falsely as the Iranian representative/voice in Media and three levels of Canadian government.
In short, any misleading will be unethical .
