Canadian woman Christine Archibald identified as victim in London terror attack

OTTAWA — A woman who worked in a homeless shelter before moving to Europe was identified on Saturday as the Canadian killed in the London terror attack that left seven people dead.

Family members say Christine Archibald from British Columbia was a victim of the attack on London Bridge and in the bustling produce market nearby.

The attack began at about 10 p.m. local time Saturday, when three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge, police said.

The attackers, wielding blades and knives, then ran down a set of stairs into Borough Market where they stabbed people in several different restaurants.

Her family in Castlegar, B.C. released a statement Sunday through the Canadian government saying Archibald moved to Europe to be with her fiance.

The family asked that people honour her memory by making the community a better place — volunteering or donating to a homeless shelter.

“She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected,” the statement said. “She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death.”
