(a) express its deep condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives in the horrific downing of Flight PS752, condemn the perpetrators, and stand in solidarity with the families in the pursuit of transparency, accountability and justice for those families;
(b) support steps taken thus far, including the implementation of a whole-of-government approach to addressing the needs of the families, the provision of consular services, immigration and travel supports, the identification and repatriation of remains, financial support (directly from the government in the form of emergency financial assistance and by matching private donations to the Canada Strong Campaign), mental health and counselling services, a regular ongoing flow of information and replies to inquiries, investigative work, the formation of a Canada-led International Coordination and Response Group (CG), the Prime Minister’s launch of the “Safer Skies” initiative at the Munich Security Conference, and Canada’s representations to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO);
(c) call upon all relevant departments and agencies of the Government of Canada to exercise all necessary diligence, persistence and determination to grapple effectively with the complexities inherent in international disasters of this magnitude, as well as the additional impediments created by the COVID-19 pandemic, so the families can ultimately know the truth about what happened, notwithstanding the time and effort such pursuit of justice may require;
(d) call upon the Government of Canada in the meantime to
(i) pursue, with the other affected states of the CG, negotiations on reparations with Iran to obtain appropriate compensation for the families of the victims from the state of Iran, in addition to the obligations of the airline company,
(ii) resolve outstanding immigration issues in a fair, equitable and compassionate manner,
(iii) implement appropriate means of honouring and commemorating the precious lives lost,
(iv) help protect families from foreign interference, intimidation, harassment and cyber threats; and
(e) support the work of the Government of Canada, in partnership with the international community through the CG and ICAO, and otherwise, to expose as much as possible the sequence of events and the decision-making chain that resulted in deadly missiles being launched against this civilian aircraft contrary to international law, and to determine how and why civilian aircraft were allowed to be in that airspace over a dangerous conflict zone, all in an effort to avoid repetitions of this disastrous set of circumstances.
