The chief executive officer of a Canadian firm impacted by the previous week’s plane crash which took place near Tehran, Iran, has criticized the Trump administration over how they handled the issues in associations between Iran and the U.S.
The chief executive officer of Maple Leaf Foods, a Canadian food packaging firm, Michael McCain stated that one of his coworkers lost his wife along with his son who was only 11 years old after Iran’s forces shot down the Ukrainian Airlines plane on Wednesday. This resulted in the demise of a total of 176 individuals.
On Sunday night, Michael McCain tweeted on his firm’s twitter account how he believes that Donald Trump, the President of the United States, was very irresponsible with his actions in the Middle East as they ultimately paved the way to the deaths of the people. He referred to them as collateral damage in an ill-thought agenda to avert focus from political worries.
The plane was shot down a little while after it left the Tehran airport. According to Iran, it accidentally shot down the flight only a couple of hours following its firing of missiles at the military bases of Iraq holding U.S. troops.
The attacks of those military bases were in retort to a U.S. drone strike that took place at the Baghdad airport and resulted in the death of Qasem Soleimani, chief Iranian commander.
The crash resulted in the demise of 57 Canadians. The crash also saw the demise of 82 Iranians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, 4 Afghans, 3 Germans as well as 3 British individuals.
While referring to the recent occurrences in Iran, Michael McCain expressed his anger, saying how time was doing nothing to cure his anger. He referred to the events as pointless and careless.
