The Association is saddened by the news of the anti-Muslim attack in London, Ontario. While this is a tragedy felt across the country, the engineering profession has lost a bright star who treasured education, female advancement, equality, and research in Madiha Salman, one of the victims. Madiha graduated with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering in Pakistan. In Canada, she obtained a master's degree at Western University and was working on her PhD. We offer our sincerest condolences to everyone affected by this tragic event. To learn more, see the CBC News website.
