Dean Deeby, For Canada Day Parties, Ottawa Snubs Officials From Pariah Countries. The Canadian Press, June 29, 2014.

(the list: North Korea, Fiji, Belarus, Iran, Syria, Madagascar and Guinea-Bissau, plus Taiwan)

Quote: "The department [Foreign Affairs] has refused to release its latest list [for 2014], but The Canadian Press obtained last year’s version — likely little changed for 2014, with the possible inclusion of Russia for the first time. * * * The memo and related materials were obtained under the Access to Information Act, with a few parts blacked out under an exemption protecting international relations.
