Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement regarding the attack in London:
“Like all British Columbians, I am shocked and saddened by today’s tragic events in London.
“British Columbia’s ties with the United Kingdom run deep. With so many shared institutions, a common language, and for millions of Canadians, ancestral or family ties, events in the UK can hit very close to home.
“Any attack on or near a symbol of democracy and freedom, such as the Houses of Parliament, can create fear and division. An earlier generation of Londoners kept calm and carried on – and I have no doubt this one will too.
"My thoughts are with the victims, and the emergency and security personnel who risk their lives to keep us safe.”
