STATEMENT FROM PREMIER BRIAN PALLISTER ON THE FATAL PLANE CRASH IN TEHRAN



I am saddened to hear of the plane crash that took place in Tehran, Iran late yesterday.

We mourn alongside the families and friends of the Manitobans who were tragically taken from us.  We also grieve for all other passengers and crew aboard Flight PS752, which included 63 Canadians.

On behalf of all Manitobans and all members of the Manitoba legislature, I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the victims.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this very difficult time.

The provincial flag will fly at half-mast in Memorial Park, in memory of all the victims.
