Public mourns UBCO attack victim, students express uneasiness

Family, friends, and the community are mourning the loss of Harmandeep Kaur, the 24-year-old security guard who was attacked and killed at the University of British Columbia – Okanagan last month. As many as 500 people gathered outside the UBCO University Centre to offer their condolences and lay bouquets on campus, and many attended a prayer service held by the Okanagan Sikh Temple and Cultural Society in Kelowna. Castanet reports that some students are feeling confused and scared after the attack that led to her death and other police incidents near campus. “Our campus is truly disturbed by the recent loss of life, and it is understandable why some feel uneasy,” said UBCO associate director of public affairs Nathan Skolski. “We would urge caution in connecting events that do not appear to be related and that do not pose an ongoing risk to UBCO.” CBC (1)| CBC (2)| The Star (CP)| Castanet Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
