Scheer Says Blame For Plane Being Shot Down “Lies With The Iranian Regime Alone”

Says IRGC must be listed as terrorist organization.

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has shared his thoughts on Iran shooting down an airliner carrying 57 people.

Unlike Justin Trudeau and much of the establishment media, Scheer showed the common sense to lay the blame exactly where it belongs: With the Iranian regime.

Here’s what Scheer said on Twitter:

“Last week, the Iranian regime shot down Flight 752. 57 Canadians lost their lives and their friends and families woke up with the realization they would never speak to their loved ones again. Canadians are grieving with them. 1/6”

“I would like to thank the Prime Minister for briefing me on the situation. We must always remember the Iranian Regime’s actions that led to this horrible atrocity. Canada’s Conservatives call on the Trudeau Liberals to take the following measures: 2/6”

“1. Immediately implement the Conservative motion passed by Parliament in 2018 to list Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization. 3/6”

“2. Demand Iran compensate all victims of the crash, repatriate their remains, and hold the perpetrators of this atrocity accountable.

3. Be prepared to impose Magnitsky Sanctions on Iran if they don’t fully cooperate with the international investigation. 4/6″

“The actions listed above are a measured and appropriate response to ensure that the families of victims receive answers. Immediate action is necessary. The Iranian Regime can not get a free pass after killing 57 Canadians. 5/6”

“The blame for this horrible atrocity lies with the Iranian Regime alone. Canada’s Conservatives will continue to advocate for an appropriate and measured response to ensure Iran is held accountable and the families of the victims receive the justice they deserve. 6/6”

Way to go Andrew Scheer, finally a politician that sees it like it is. The blame lies solely on the shoulders of the Iranians. Now freeze all Iranians assets that are in Canada and withdraw all Canadian funding to Iran. Finally someone with a spine and level head. Too bad we don’t have anyone like that in the PM chair or ruling government. While we’re at it, defund the CBC and all other mainstream media outlets.


Finally some strength from the Conservatives, unlike Trudeau who figuresPres. Trump was at fault for defending democracy and freedom. Paving the way to the UN?
