Thousands Gather Across Canada to Mourn Plane Crash Victims

Thousands Gather Across Canada to Mourn Plane Crash Victims

Vigils were held across Canada on January 9 following the crash of a Ukraine International Airlines plane near Tehran the day before. All 176 people aboard the plane were killed, including 63 Canadian citizens. Organizers said over 3,000 people gathered in Toronto’s Mel Lastman Square to recognize the “devastating loss of life”. The plane, a Boeing 737, crashed minutes after takeoff from Imam Khomeini International Airport. According to Canadian media, Toronto Mayor John Tory said at the vigil “when one person suffers in Toronto, we all suffer.” On January 9, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that “evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.” US intelligence officials also indicated they believed the plane was shot down, a conclusion supported by video evidence analysed by news outlets, including Storyful.
