SHARETORONTO -- It was only a few years ago that Shaho Shahbazpanahi remembers moving his friend Razgar Rahimi and his young family into their home.He's now trying to figure out what to do without them, not only in terms of grieving their loss, but how to take care of everything they left behind in Stouffville, north of Toronto.
Rahimi, his wife, Farideh Gholami, and their three-year-old son, Jiwan Rahimi -- "little Razgar" as Shahbazpanahi called him -- were among the 176 passengers who died when a Ukraine International Airlines flight was shot down by the Iranian military near Tehran last week. headtopics.com
"I get up each hour during the night and I feel something's missing," Shahbazpanahi said.Friends say the couple, who arrived in Canada six years ago without any other relatives, made lasting relationships and friends became like family.Gholami, a talented jewelry designer, was seven months pregnant with their second son when she died and had already decorated a room for the new baby.
"Razgar and Farideh always dreamt of having a big family," said Arin Minasian, another close friend.Shahbazpanahi said he's been in touch with the family's relatives in Iran hoping to find out what they want done with the couple's two vehicles and their belongings inside the rental house.
"It is my responsibility," he said. "It's a responsibility of any close friend to help a friend."There were 57 Canadian citizens killed and many more of the dead had ties to Canada.What will happen to victims' belongings is a concern for the Iranian Heritage Society of Edmonton, said president Reza Akbari.
He said most of the 13 passengers from Edmonton were first-generation immigrants. He doesn't know how many of them had relatives living in Canada.Akbari believes some people who knew the passengers, including international students studying in Canada, may be wondering what to do with their things. headtopics.com
His group recently sent out a message to its networks in Farsi asking people to get in touch to help facilitate communication with relatives in Iran or to get legal advice.Vancouver lawyer Samin Mortazavi said disasters such as the plane crash present challenges for victims' relatives.
Mortazavi, who deals with estates as part of his family law and immigration practice, said relatives of someone with assets in both Iran and Canada could find themselves dealing with Canadian and Iranian law.Travel could also be an obstacle."Imagine there's a passenger, Ms. Jones, who is an Iranian-Canadian living in Vancouver for the past 30 years. Now Ms. Jones has no relative or next of kin or a friend that she named as an executor in Vancouver, but she has a sister in Iran and that sister wants to apply to be her executor," Mortazavi said.
"It would be very difficult for that sister to travel to Canada in order to apply through our B.C. Supreme Court to become appointed as the executor."Canada's lack of a diplomatic relationship with Iran makes it tough for an Iranian to acquire a temporary resident visa, he added.
The federal government says it has established a dedicated email and phone line to help victims' families who urgently need visas to travel to Canada.Mortazavi said a death certificate is also necessary to handle a person's affairs and relatives could be waiting for Iranian officials to issue one. headtopics.com
Sending money back to Iran also can be difficult because of sanctions.Settling a victim's affairs could take up to a year, he said.Shahbazpanahi said he's talking to the couple's landlord and has done things such as cancel their internet. At this point, he doesn't know what's going to happen to everything inside the home.
He's unsure if the couple had a will or if their relatives, now dealing with funerals, can travel to Canada to sort things out.Shahbazpanahi anticipates that one day he will have to go inside his friend's house to help pack things away."That's going to be my worst day ever."

the dump. Not news at all.. A horrific and tragic incident. Poor innocent people killed by their home country. RIP The world is responsible to provide justice to families and culprits should be brought to justice You misspelled ‘shot down by a murderous terrorist supporting regime’ Plane crash? perhaps process grief then think about what to do with belongings?
Rough landing leaves friends in Canada wondering what to do with belongings Hey so you know the definition of a planet crash? This wasn’t a plane crash. Keep up your fictional reporting and you will become the Canadian version of NationaIEnquire Apparently CTV News is somehow under the impression that the people on the plane were the only people ever to leave behind 'belongings' when they died.
Not a plane crash.. Hey CTV, I dont think being blown out of the sky by S.A.M missiles is the same thing as a plane crash. Why are you minimizing what could more accurately be called a terrorist act, or an act of war? I guess you're technically correct, planes do crash after being hit by two missiles. And you wonder why you are called the enemy of the people.
Universities across Canada plan moment of silence for plane crash victimsUniversities across Canada are coming together today to honour the victims of a plane crash in Iran that left no survivors a week ago. Shot down..... this was murder Two missiles shot this Plane down the second missile 23 seconds after the first. This was a deliberate targeting! Prayers for the families and my condolences but this was targeted not a crash!
Donate it. Just like anyone else who’s lost love ones. Wtf “Plane explosion from deadly terrorist attack leaves friends in Canada wondering what to do with belongings”. There CTV, fixed it for you......cuz we all know you Trudeau kiss-ass media have your head in the sand. Stop calling it a plane crash, the fact the plane crashed after it was shot down with a missile, does not make the loss of life the result of a plane crash. - This is a less decptive and far more accurate headline: 'Iranian missile attack on plane, leaves friends in Canada.....'
It wasn't a plane crash. Iran shot it down. Stop the FakeNews Canadian media still carrying water for the Iranian regime by calling this a plane crash...shameful! Not sure why this was determined to be 'news'. When a person dies, all families and friends are left with deciding what to do with the decedent's belongings.
The same thing that one does when anyone dies. This though as tragic as it is, is not new or the first of it's kind. People died and that is sad. FakeNewsMedia It was not a plane crash Donate!

Plane crash black boxes ‘are with Iran,’ Canada prepared to help decode: GarneauOfficials have begun their investigation into the downing of the aircraft and is ready to deploy a second team to help in decoding the black boxes, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said. *are ready Liberals need a distraction for something they did or R about to do to Canada & Canadians..Iranians fessed up & admitted to killing 58 CDNS. So begs to ask the questions why spend which will be likely millions on some keystone investigation to conclude what IS ALREADY known! Send Trudeau to Iran, he’s all in favour of getting an advance heads on what’s happening- maybe he should sober up & go himself. The sock puppet could use a dose of reality.
You might as well say they died from Typhoid if you’re going to lie. People are dying everyday and you’r still talking about this plane ✈️ god help us Only thing crashing is your fake news ctv. Get your story straight the plane was shot down by 2 missiles !!!!! it was not a plane crash.... you just proved how bias your media outlet is but we already knew that with how you handled Jessica and racist hockey rant from the 'social'.
Can I suggest to have each of the family take a Momento of your kind friend and donate his clothes to a charitable to your friend and family member. Gordons auctions.. or Kijiji. The plane was shot down. Is this what $600 Million tax dollars bought for the liberals? Crash? It was missiles. The Irainian military badicly called the air traffic controler and yelled' PULL!!!!. Not an accident.
You mean “plane blown up by terrorist regime”....fixed it for you 👏🏻👏🏻

NotaPlaneCrash. 2 missiles lumbering passenger jet,following same,only trajectory as 6 previous lumbering passenger jets. Departed shortly before. Russian. 2 Turkish. German. Austrian. ..how even possible. Pmjt :iranprotests no comment =ties to Iran state media documentaries
Milking it.... Have you not noticed CTV? Hasn't your viewership fallen lately? People have woken up to your UN/NWO MO, FakeNewsMedia pushing an agenda, socially engineering stupid people (sheeple) for decades. You will not & cannot survive the Great Awakening.

Be better, ffs. Really....donate or put in a shoe box under your bed. Such fakenews Killer Iranian govt cold blooded. Killed Canadians
What plane crash? You keep saying these words but I don't think you think you know what that means. It wasn't a crash! It was shot out of the skies by 2 missles fired by Iran! Stop with the nonsense! So —- the EXACT same problems/questions that ANYONE faces when dealing with a sudden family death. Top shelf reporting there.
‘It’s not safe at all’: Iran harassing families of plane crash victims, sources say‘They know that if these families … put the blame on the Islamic Republic, the whole of society in Iran would be united against the Islamic Republic’ Why would Trump do that? And Trudeau is doing what ? PahlaviReza jaredkushner Not something new. They harrased Zahra Kazemi's family, Neda's family and many more. This monstrous bloody-hands' gov is master of creating Kaos & fear to control. That is why they shot down the plane creating fear among their other agent from leaving.
Plane crash A terrorist attack on innocent people? Plane crashed after being shot down by Iran but headlines....... ...take them out to the curb on trash day...not rocket science.... I’m glad to see that no matter how the Canadian garbage media “word” things.... Canadians are not stupid and buy into it. The plane was shot down! Report accurately .
“Plane crash” It WASN’T a plane crash! What’s wrong with you media outlets? Have you been that brainwashed by JustinTrudeau? It wasn't a 'crash'. It was SHOT DOWN BY IRANIAN MILITARY. Instead of this nonsense issue (not demeaning the deaths), why not do some real investigative reporting for a change! ie Who exactly was on that flight 2 warrant this so-called 'accident'? How many r wealthy & don't warrant a handout from our gov't when Cdns are desperate 4 food.
How about paying it forward? Donate ot to shelters or some homeless people. Blankets coats boots etc. It wasn’t a f’ing plane crash! It was an act of terrorism
It wasn't a plane crash the plane was shot down by surface to air missiles. How is you as journalists cant even get that right? IT WAS SHOT DOWN First, it wasn't a plane crash, it was shot down! Second, how is this news? Anyone who has had a loved one die goes through this. I feel empathy for these people but for the love of God stop trying to milk this for everything you can.
Wow... My God, grow a brain folks. Shot down plane by two missiles. Not a crash. You are expected to report accurate news. Ummm do whatever was outlined in their will? If they had no will it can be donated or sold.... everyone who loses a loved one has to do this.. this isnt news Plane crash? Which 'plane crash' are you referring to?
For heavens sakes. Uses their brains figure it out folks. The plane only 'crashed' after two missiles were fired at it. How hard is this for canadian media to understand? educationfail CTV CTV Stop the fake narrative. It wasn't a CRASH!!! It was a commecial airplane shot down with 2 missiles by Iranian terrorist regime. Get your damn facts straight.
This is sooooooo sad..... Shit happens every day to people in canada people die unexpectedly, and are freaking out ,what to do ,so STOP with the oh these poor people deal with it SHIT HAPPENS . CTV, your Supreme Leader, Justin Trudeau does not use the verbiage, 'Plane Crash'. Why do you persist with misinformation of the facts by sympathizing with Terrorists. THE PLANE WAS SHOT DOWN by a Canadian Confirmed State Supporter or Terror, Iran. Get the facts right!
Just stop CTV. You are using people's grief to push your left wing agenda. SIT DOWN. I understand the dilemma that these folks are in but blaming our government for not having diplomatic relations with Iran is not reasonable . When they move here they are all well aware of Canada's relationship with Iran should of planned for future accordingly.
