Today, Ontario Premier Doug Ford issued the following statement after meeting with Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs François-Philippe Champagne:
“I want to thank Minister Champagne for taking the time today to provide an extensive update on the recent plane crash in Iran that claimed the lives of 57 Canadian passengers, including several from Ontario.
My priority is doing everything we can to support the families of the victims and ensure justice is served. The federal government and the Government of Ontario are united in our insistence on a comprehensive and independent investigation by the international community. We owe the victims and their families nothing less.
With our federal partners, we will continue to uphold our shared values of freedom, dignity, and democracy for all.”
