PM Justin Trudeau Says ‘If There Was No Escalation Canadians Would Be Home With Their Families’
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seemed to point the finger at President Trump for the deaths of passengers on the Ukrainian airlines that was shot down by the Iranian government.
In an interview with Canada’s Global News, Trudeau said, “I think if there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families.”
“This is something that happens when you have conflict and war. Innocents bear the brunt of it and it is a reminder why all of us need to work so hard on de-escalation, moving forward to reduce tensions and find a pathway that doesn’t involve further conflict and killing,” added Trudeau.
Trudeau commented that he would have liked a “heads-up” since Canada has troops in Iraq.
In an exclusive interview with @DFriesenGlobal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that in his opinion, the "tensions" in the region led directly to the downing of a passenger jet outside Tehran which claimed at least 57 Canadian lives.— Globalnews.ca (@globalnews) January 13, 2020
