Canada expects to play a big role in Iran's probe of an airliner crash that killed 63 Canadians even though the two nations do not have diplomatic ties, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday.

Note to the Iranians: refusing to turn over those black box flight recorders makes you look awfully suspicious, in case you were wondering.
What are they hiding? Friends and families of the 176 people who died deserve to know what happened and those flight recorders likely hold the answers.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said 138 of the passengers on a Ukrainian jet that crashed in Iran, killing all on board, were connecting to Canada and offered his condolences on behalf of the nation https://t.co/A0bqg5lQy2 pic.twitter.com/usUTijdSYp— Reuters (@Reuters) January 9, 2020
Mourning loss of all those on the plane in Iran including Mohammad Asadi Lari - a brilliant @uoftmdphd student I knew. Can’t imagine what’s it like for their friends as family. Loss for the world and Canada https://t.co/DJr7xN7m6R— Dr. Valiante (@DrValiante) January 9, 2020
When I see the faces of the neighbours, colleagues and fellow citizens killed on Ukraine flight 752, I see the face of Canada. Our Persian fellow citizens have enriched our country so much that all Canadians share in the loss https://t.co/BNywHVgZ2E— Ben Rowswell (@benrowswell) January 9, 2020

We're sorry Iran. Canada didn't mean to hit your missile.— Cody Granrud (@12BravoGran) January 9, 2020
Please forgive them. https://t.co/DNIGCh6buA
Iran is withholding the black boxes & spinning nonsense comparisons to the 737 MAX, whose defects are unrelated to the 737-800. Iran is also lying about the flight path. If it had been the US that shot down a commercial airliner, the world would cry murderhttps://t.co/EF3hI6NH0k— Jonathan Kay (@jonkay) January 9, 2020
