Lakehead University will be joining universities across Canada who will be participating in a moment of silence on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 1 p.m. Wherever you may be at that time, we encourage you to take a moment.

Canada’s University Community Mourns

Dear friend of Canada’s universities,

Please join Canada’s universities in a moment of silence at 1:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, January 15th, 2020, one week after the devastating crash of UIA752 in Iran, to honour all those who perished.

This is to complement the incredibly meaningful and thoughtful actions already being undertaken by universities, communities, countries and all who were touched by this tragedy.

Of the 176 victims, many of the passengers were our students, faculty, researchers and alumni.

Involvement in this national gesture is voluntary and flexible. People and organizations can join in as they are able and as they deem appropriate. One of the best ways to take part is to follow us on social media and share our national message of condolence and the date and time of the moment of silence.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of this.

Paul Davidson
President, Universities Canada
