Premier Rachel Notley said Albertans have been shocked and deeply saddened by the attack.
Messages of sorrow and condolence have been pouring in following the death of a Canadian woman who was killed in Saturday's terror attack in the heart of London.
In the attack at London Bridge, reports and witnesses say a white van plowed into a crowd of pedestrians before three men with large knives exited the vehicle and began attacking people.
In what sounds like a story straight out of a movie, a Canadian woman died in the arms of her husband-to-be during the terror attack that took place in London over the weekend.
"She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected". Volunteer your time and labor or donate to a homeless shelter. "They're a tight group here and Chrissy was loved, meant a lot to them".
The 30-year old Archibald had worked at a homeless shelter in the western city of Calgary before she moved to the Netherlands to be with her fiancé, Tyler Ferguson. She worked to help homeless people in Calgary.
He said the family wrote the press release, now available throughout national media, last night, as they tried to determine how to deal with the influx of press requests, and said they were working closely with the government in managing this most impossible of situations.
Ferguson Rowe said she hoped the use of the hashtag would "urge people to not let her death be in vain, to do good in their community".
His family had travelled to Europe to comfort his grieving brother, he said, and was hoping to eventually launch a charity foundation in Archibald's name.
Another of Ferguson's siblings, Mark Ferguson, said in a Facebook post they did everything they could but weren't able to save Archibald.
Archibald died in the arms of her fiancé, who had been walking just ahead of her when the attack happened.
"As her family and province mourn, we must never forget who we are-and the diversity that makes us strong".
"She was very caring but at the same time very professional".
