No,  the Canadian Transportation Safety Board has not completed their
investigation.

There has been some speculation that the fire in the cockpit was so intense
that it actually drove the crew out of the cockpit, but there has been
nothing official on that yet.  The poor crew really had their hands full,
cockpit on fire, #2 engine off-line, electrical problems...etc.  It's no
wonder that the plane crashed.
