  1. This appears to be the biggest loss of Canadian lives in an aviation disaster since the Air India bombing in 1985 that killed 329 people.

  2. If any hostile Aliens are reading this, don’t bother invading us. We’ll just wipe ourselves out.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.cp24.com/mobile/news/63-canadians-aboard-ukrainian-airliner-that-crashed-in-iran-official-says-1.4757790) reduced by 83%. (I’m a bot)

    > SHAHEDSHAHR, Iran – Dozens of Canadians were among the 176 people killed when a Ukrainian passenger plane crashed minutes after takeoff from Teheran's main airport, Ukraine's government said on Wednesday.

    > Ukraine's Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said the Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737-800, which was en route to Kyiv when it went down in a field, was carrying 63 Canadians, 82 Iranians, 11 Ukrainian passengers and crew, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans and three Britons.

    > The agency warned against any non-essential travel to Iran "Due to the volatile security situation, the regional threat of terrorism and the risk of arbitrary detention." The agency said Canadians, particularly those holding dual Canadian-Iranian citizenship, were at risk of being arbitrarily questioned, arrested and detained.

  4. As a Canadian, here’s my response: It’s really too bad our people were caught in the cross-fire of someone else’s ill considered aggression. This will change nothing about how we feel about Iran. We consider this horrific collateral damage, not an attack on our people or our country.
