So you've decided to marry a cabinet minister

In interviews with the Globe and Post, the reporter who interviewed Nazanin Afshin-Jam for the Guardian explains his side of the story.

Day said “Afshin-Jam was free to refuse comment on Khadr but she freely chose to answer my questions.”

As for referring to her as the Defence Minister’s wife…

The reporter said he identified Ms. Afshin-Jam MacKay as the Defence Minister’s wife because, in Canada, that is the status that gives her the highest recognition, not the fact that she is a former Miss World Canada or a human rights activist.
