At a Sunday vigil where more than 2,000 people packed into an Edmonton sports centre to grieve the victims of the Ukrainian flight that crashed over Iran last week, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said the crash marked one of the most tragic days in the history of the province.

Kenney said the passengers, among them at least 57 Canadian citizens and more than a dozen with ties to Alberta, were victims of a "chain of actions rooted in the all-too-human failure to resolve conflicts peacefully."

The next morning on Twitter, he touted a potential upside to instability in the Middle Eastern country.
