MLI author Christian Leuprecht spoke with CTV News Channel and the Sun News Network about MH17, the Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down in Ukraine last week.

Leuprecht told CTV News Channel that because individual airlines decide whether to fly over Ukrainian airspace it’s up to individual passengers to know the path their flight will be taking before they get on board.

Speaking to the Sun News Network, Leuprecht said the evidence suggests that the group that shot the plane down likely didn’t know what they were targeting.

Leuprecht is the author of several MLI reports, including most recently his study on the high costs of police services in Canada titled "The Blue Line or the Bottom Line of Police Services in Canada: Arresting runaway costs".
