Call me cynical but I can imagine that the evidence which supports a missile strike will somehow have been "lost" by the time Canada or other experts get a look.

Probably but it will be self defeating. Iran's credibility will be shot if they do that. I do understand their reluctance to send anything to the US. In the past the French have done independent analysis and Iran would be wise to use them. Don't expect an apology though, Russia and the US have set the bar very low when it comes to consequences for shooting down civilian airliners.
