A Canadian woman is the first victim to be identified in the London terror attack. Christine Archibald, 30, a former homeless shelter worker, died in her fiancé, Tyler Ferguson’s arms after being mowed down by the terrorist driving the speeding van. The attack left seven dead and 50 injured, many of the injured are still in life threatening condition.
Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said he was “heartbroken” about the death of his Canadian constituent.
“Canadians stand united with the British people,” said Trudeau
“These hateful acts do not deter us; they only strengthen our resolve…We will continue to work together with the United Kingdom and all our allies to fight terrorism and bring perpetrators to justice,” Trudeau said.
Archibald’s family said they had lost a “beautiful, loving daughter and sister”.
“She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected,” they said.
“She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death.”
Archibald’s family asked for people to “Please honor her by making your community a better place… volunteer your time and labor or donate to a homeless shelter. Tell them Chrissy sent you,” the statement concluded.
