Canadian Prime Minister Promises Justice For Plane Crash Victims – 710am KURV

Harjit Sajjan, federal minister of defence, joined with several hundred Iranian-Canadians and their supporters who gathered Sunday afternoon in the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery to mourn the 176 people killed on-board Ukraine International Airline Flight PS 752.

Iran said it had "unintentionally" shot down the Boeing which crashed shortly after it took off from Tehran airport.

Iran has admitted the plane was mistaken for a hostile target amid soaring tensions with the United States.

A Canada-wide campaign to raise funds for family members of those killed on Flight PS752 in Iran was launched Monday with a call for people across the country to support those left behind with "the unexpected expenses that have tragically fallen upon them". "We are one family".

Asked by The Current's Matt Galloway what exactly that meant, Mendicino said that "in the short-term, it begins with the devastating admission that Iran provided".

Matas said there is more at stake than simply money.

According to worldwide lawyers, the families of the casualties on Flight PS752 are probably entitled to financial compensation, but can also achieve this through a comprehensive arrangement with the government of Iran.

Fiorante said people travelling to Canada on a one-way ticket or returning to Canada on a round-trip ticket would be covered by the Montreal Convention, an worldwide treaty to which Canada and Ukraine are signatories, but Iran is not.

After completing her post-graduation, Abigale jumped the journalism bandwagon as a freelance journalist. After Savage left the fight, Clary admitted she no longer supports or believes in Kelly.

Asked how Canada would keep Iran accountable, Mendicino said the North American country would "continue to engage Iran" on the issue.

Lawyers say there are three main avenues for family members to achieve financial compensation: through civil action, through the International Court of Justice, or through international diplomacy. Dozens of Canadian citizens were on the flight and a memorial service was held for those victims Sunday.

Trudeau has called the airplane crash "horrific" and a "Canadian tragedy" and has said Iran "must take full responsibility".

"I had the chance to sit with some of the families of the victims".

"A full and complete investigation must be conducted", Trudeau said.

Members of the working group had a telephone conversation yesterday in which they all discussed the need for justice, including compensation for victims, according to a reading from the Champagne office.

In a statement published on Facebook, Zelenskiy said: "We expect from Iran assurances of their readiness for a full and open investigation, bringing those responsible to justice, the return of the bodies of the dead, the payment of compensation, official apologies through diplomatic channels".
