I just want peace on these streets, y’all! First we mourn the loss




January 8, 2020: Wednesday night about 50 people gathered at the Alberta Legislature for a candlelight vigil mourning the victims of Ukraine Flight PS752. Words were shared by UCP the (Hon) David Hanson (Hon) Ministers Adriana LaGrange, Kaycee Madu and NDP (Hon) David Shepherd. Earlier in the day after a dump of snow, the first good dump in weeks with the sun shining brightly I knew it was time for another Snow Angel❤️HeART 'Up to snow good' in the river valley. A tribute was in order I thought to myself on the Kinsmen football field for all the crash victims of Flight PS752 including 63 Canadians, many of whom lived, went to school and taught here at our University in Edmonton.

This week she responded on the Iran/US conflict "With a heavy heart, as an Iranian-Canadian who spent some of my youth in America, here is my position in the Iran-USA situation... I just want peace on these streets, y’all."
