Premier Christy Clark ‘shocked and saddened’ by attack in London

PREMIER Christy Clark on Wednesday said that like all British Columbians, she was shocked and saddened by the tragic events in London.

She added: “British Columbia’s ties with the United Kingdom run deep. With so many shared institutions, a common language, and for millions of Canadians, ancestral or family ties, events in the UK can hit very close to home.

“Any attack on or near a symbol of democracy and freedom, such as the Houses of Parliament, can create fear and division. An earlier generation of Londoners kept calm and carried on – and I have no doubt this one will too.

“My thoughts are with the victims, and the emergency and security personnel who risk their lives to keep us safe.”
