Plane would not have crashed if Iran did not shoot it down! This is not a plane crash. It’s murder by a terrible regime!

They are marching against the government for regime change not the military. CBC is siding with the evil of the Iranian totalitarian dictatorship.!

If I lived in Iran, I doubt I would be courageous enough to openly protest their regime.

It's remarkably brave of these people to stand up to this government with its long history of using torture and executions to suppress dissenters.
