June 23, 2013 - 1:06 PM

VICTORIA - Premier Christy Clark issued the following statement to mark
the National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism:

"Twenty-eight years ago today, terrorists set off a bomb on Air India
Flight 182 that killed all 329 passengers and crew members aboard, 280 of
them Canadians.

"Today, we join together to remember those who lost their lives in this
attack, and also to pay tribute to the memory of victims of other acts of
terrorism, including the Sept. 11, 2011 attacks in the U.S., and most
recently the Boston Marathon bombings and the terror attack in Woolwich,
London.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all families affected by terrorist
acts, those who remain potential targets and the men and women who risk
their lives to stand up against terrorism around the world."
