As groups representing Iranian-Canadians and Jewish-Canadians called on the federal government to get tough on the regime in Tehran, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent a signal to his base that the person he really blames the shooting down of Ukraine International Flight 752 is Donald Trump. Soleimani had been responsible for funding, training and arming groups such as the Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. He was also responsible for Iran’s part in the ongoing civil war in Yemen and was a backer of the Assad regime in Syria.“If there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families,” Trudeau told Global.
