Canada PM Trudeau: Iran plane families will get answers
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it's been gut-wrenching to listen to stories from relatives of 57 Canadians who perished in the downing of a Ukrainian jetliner in Iran last week as he attended one of several memorials across the country on Sunday.
Speaking at a memorial in Edmonton, Alberta Trudeau said he has learned many of the victims came to Canada in search of new opportunities for their families, but those families are now consumed by grief.
The plane was shot down by an Iranian missile moments after taking off from Tehran Wednesday.
All 176 on board were killed, including 138 who were headed for Canada.
