Montreal man among Iran plane crash dead

A Concordia engineering student is one of the 63 Canadians killed in the plane crash in Iran. 176 passengers and crew have died all told; today will probably see a sad progression of tweets as the dead are named in the media.

The Gazette names three Montrealers so far.

Seems a lot of the Canadian victims were students and professors on their way back to Canada for the start of winter term.
