The Canadian government believes U.S. reports that a plane in Iran was accidentally shot down killing 63 Canadians.

Government sources tell CTV News the Canadian government believes the U.S. Intelligence reports that the Ukrainian plane was accidentally shot down by an Iranian missile are credible.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to address the public at 2 p.m.

CKTB will carry it live.

The plane crashed minutes after taking off from Tehran's airport on Wednesday.

 Among the theories is that an Iranian air-defence missile shot the plane down, possibly by accident. Ukrainian officials have said that's on their list of potential causes for the crash.
    
Two U.S. officials told The Associated Press Thursday it was ``highly likely'' that an Iranian anti-aircraft missile downed the jetliner.
