In solidarity and support of universities across Canada, Thompson Rivers University invites members of our university and broader communities to join in a Canada-wide moment of silence on Wednesday, Jan 15, in remembrance of those who perished in the crash of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 in Iran.

This moment of silence will be observed at 10 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, and is an invitation by universities and our representative association, Universities Canada, to honour those we have lost. Included were students. alumni, staff and faculty from approximately two dozen Canadian post-secondary institutions.

Wherever you may be Wednesday at 10 a.m., I encourage you to take this time to reflect, and remember.
