PRINCE GEORGE (January 8, 2021) – Interim Leader of the Official Opposition Shirley Bond released the following statement today on the one year anniversary of the downing of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752:
“A year ago today, families and communities across this country were deeply impacted by the senseless deaths of 176 people when the Iranian regime shot down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752.
“Among the dead were 55 Canadian citizens and 15 people with ties to British Columbia.
“On this tragic anniversary, my heart goes out to those who lost loved ones that day and still lack closure on the horrible events that led to their deaths last January.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I want to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the families and loved ones of all the passengers and flight crew. We stand with you and will continue to support everyone still working hard to achieve the justice you so rightly deserve.”
