Premier John Horgan says the province is mourning the tragic loss of life in the devastating plane crash in Iran.

British Columbians are among the 63 Canadian victims on the Boeing flight that went down near Tehran minutes after takeoff, killing all 176 people on board.

A Vancouver-based Iranian-Canadian organization says a Vancouver engineer, his wife and their 15-year-old son were on board the flight enroute to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

The niece of a North Vancouver couple who were award-winning doctors in Iran says they were also killed while returning from a visit with family.

Horgan says his government's thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims as well as the greater Iranian-Canadian community in BC.
