CTC remembers slain diplomat Col. Attila Altıkat

Aug 27, 2020

The Council of Turkish Canadians (CTC) keeps alive the memory of Col. Attila Altıkat with a special Wreath Laying Ceremony on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 14:00. The Special Service will be held in front of the Fallen Diplomats Monument at the Corner of Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Island Park Drive. Due to the COVID-19 conditions, no speeches will be presented at this year’s Commemoration. This date marks the 38th anniversary of the heinous killing of Turkish diplomat Atilla Altıkat by Armenian terrorists at this corner. Altıkat is the first fallen diplomat in Canada. This year, as in previous years, CTC remembers Col. Altıkat and all diplomats who have lost their lives in the line of duty to senseless acts of terrorism.  CTC condemns all acts of terrorism in the true message of the Fallen Diplomats Monument as a symbol of peace and justice in our multicultural world. Once again, we ask that Canadian justice be done to bring closure to Col. Altıkat’s case.
