Iran Plane Crash: Statement from Premier Kenney
The Alberta Legislature is lit up tonight in red and white in remembrance of the 63 Canadian victims of UIA Flight 752, many of whom were Albertans.

“On behalf of the Government of Alberta, I extend my deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the passengers.

“I thank the Government of Canada for pressing for an investigation into this crash, and offering support to the victims’ families.”
