Air India memorial in Stanley Park, Vancouver BC

Statement – A/Commr. Dave Teboul, Pacific Region Commander, Federal Policing RCMP

The RCMP offers our deepest sympathies, understanding and support to the families of the victims of Air India Flight 182.

The impacts of the greatest terror-related loss of life involving and affecting Canadians in our country’s history have not diminished with time. The trauma caused by the bombing on June 23, 1985 has impacted generations.

The Air India investigation is the longest and certainly one of the most complex domestic terrorism investigations that the RCMP has undertaken in our history. Our investigative efforts remain active and ongoing.

This year marks the 39th anniversary memorial, with the 40th memorial, a significant milestone, approaching in 2025. At the memorials, previous and current employees from the investigation and our greater organization, past and present will ensure we remember those lost and those left to deal with the unthinkable. Over the years, attending the memorials have been an opportunity to pay our respects to the victims and their families, and show our appreciation for all those that did so much to respond to and investigate the tragedy. We encourage you to do the same in private or at the memorials in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.

We must never forget those innocent lives lost to this tragedy and other acts of terrorism.
