In early 2007 we had the priviledge of designing the sundial feature for the Air India Flight 182 Memorial in Toronto. The sundial was unveiled by Prime Minister Stephen Harper on June 23, 2007, the 22nd anniversary of the bombing.

Five day later, on June 28, 2010, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited the memorial and participated in a private remembrance with representative victims' family members.
Although the sundial had been vandalized in the Spring of 2010, repairs were made just in time for the 25th anniversary. For further information about the Air India Memorial Sundial see the following:
