Air India Memorial Sundial Repaired in Time for 25th Anniversary Ceremonies

In early 2007 we had the privilege 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.

And on June 23, 2010, the Prime Minister was again on hand, this time for the 25th anniversary ceremony.

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:
