Parliament Video: Jenny in QP: Will the Minister commit to evacuating Canadians who are stranded in Iran?

On February 27, 2020, I rose in Question Period to ask:

Jenny Kwan Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, Iran has the most COVID-19 cases in the Middle East, and Canadians are unable to fly out because all commercial flights have been cancelled. The minister said no one in Iran is requesting airlifts to get out of the country, but the facts tell a different story. Within the last 48 hours, the Iranian Canadian Congress has received over 100 emails from Canadians who are stranded in Iran.

Will the minister commit to evacuating Canadians out of Iran, just as the government did for Canadians in China and Japan?"
