Air India Remembrance!


The National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism held last Saturday to mark the anniversary of the Air India bombing. BC Premier John Horgan said: “On June 23, 1985, Air India Flight 182 was en route from Canada to India when a bomb exploded mid-flight, killing every passenger on board. Canadians will never forget this act of terror that took the lives of 329 people, including 280 Canadians. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims. We remember those who were taken from their friends, families and their communities, as well as the people who have witnessed acts of terror and survived.  Perpetrators of terrorism seek to shatter our sense of safety and peace. Their violent acts try to turn communities against one another. They seek to divide us against ourselves.  We must never allow anger, fear and hatred to take root in our hearts. We will not let these senseless acts of terror change who we are.”
