Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement on the knife attack at Abbotsford Senior Secondary:
“Yesterday, I was shocked to hear about the tragic attack at Abbotsford Senior Secondary school. Schools are supposed to be – and must be – places where parents know their kids are safe. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure that.
“I hope the investigation concludes swiftly, so we can take whatever action is required to make sure a tragedy like this never happens in British Columbia again. Until we have those answers, I want to commend the heroism of the staff and fellow students who came to the victims’ aid and subdued the suspect. Your bravery is an example for us all.
“I cannot imagine the heartbreak of everyone involved. My thoughts are with the victims, their friends and families, and everyone at Abbotsford Senior Secondary.”
