Tensions at a vigil in Toronto’s north end for the victims of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 came to a head Thursday evening, resulting in a physical fight breaking out among a few attendees. Two vigils were occurring at the time of the altercation and it’s estimated hundreds were in attendance at both events. One was hosted by independent Iranian-Canadian citizens in Mel Lastman Square and the other was hosted by the Iranian Canadian Congress inside the North York Civic Centre… Some of the attendees were being accused of being part of the current Iranian regime and some were accused of being spies.
