Universities across Canada have been devastated by the loss of community members in the Tehran plane crash. To honour the lives of the victims, a national moment of silence will be held at 1 p.m. EST this Wednesday, Jan. 15. I encourage you to observe this minute of silence wherever you are on the Carleton campus.

Please also join us on the same day for a Carleton vigil planned for 2 p.m. in the Tory Building foyer to honor Fareed Arasteh, PhD student in biology, and Mansour Pourjam, biology alumnus, and indeed all victims of this terrible tragedy. Condolence books will be available to sign.

Sincerely,
Benoit-Antoine Bacon
President and Vice-Chancellor
