Reza Akbari and Coun. Terri McConnachie at the Monday night’s vigil. Akbari, who Shiraz Cafe in Prince George, returned on the weekend from a trip to Iran, where he is from. Luckily, his return journey did not take him through the United States where he may have got caught up in that country’s new travel ban. He said he had originally thought of booking his trip back through the United States (long before the travel ban was implemented), but, luckily, he didn’t. Bill Phillips photo
