Albertans invited to sign online condolences for Iran plane crash victims’ families

Albertans are invited to pay tribute to the victims of the Flight PS752 crash in Iran by sharing their sympathies and support through an online condolence book.

“Our province is united in the grief and compassion we feel for the families and friends of the Albertans lost in the crash,” said Premier Jason Kenney.

“We’re making this online condolence page available so the people of our province can come together in love and support as we begin the long, difficult journey of healing.”

The online condolence page is available for two weeks at https://www.alberta.ca/messages-of-condolence-for-victims-of-the-iran-plane-crash.cfm.

Then the condolences will be shared with the Iranian Heritage Society of Edmonton to ensure this community knows that Albertans are coming together to support them through this incredibly difficult time.

Flags at the Alberta legislature in Edmonton and McDougall Centre in Calgary were lowered on Jan. 8 and will remain at half-mast until sunset on Jan. 10.

“On behalf of the Government of Alberta, I extend my deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the passengers,” said Premier Kenney in a statement.

On January 8, 2020, Ukrainian International Airlines flight PS752 crashed near Tehran killing 176 people, including 63 Canadians – many of whom were from Alberta.
