It is not clear how we have dealt with the big issue that kept them off the list for the last few years, which is that being a member of a listed entity is a crime in Canada. We have many Canadians who were members because they were involuntarily drafted in Iran and made to serve, but that is a still a crime as there is no exception made. Neither the press release nor the list itself explains how this will be handled. You can note that it is also a crime to support, give money or spread propaganda for a listed entity.
