Extending Condolences To Families and Friends at the University of Calgary

The nation was shocked yesterday to hear of the stabbing murder of five University of Calgary students. We were horrified and saddened by the loss of these young people just when their lives were so full of joy, discovery, and potential – like thousands of young people here at the University of Toronto. For that reason, we are particularly touched by this tragedy. I know all faculty, staff, and students will join with me in offering condolences to the families and friends of the victims, and to our colleagues at the University of Calgary as they deal with this terrible tragedy.
