Ian Moore Wilson has been identified as the Canadian killed and his wife Valerie injured in the Barcelona van attack.

The father of Vancouver police officer Fiona Wilson was described by his daughter as “compassionate, generous, adventurous, and always game for a lively debate, a good book, exploring new places, and a proper-sized pint.”

In a statement posted to the Vancouver Police Department website the officer said her family had experienced “extraordinary acts of human kindness” over the last few days and wanted to focus on the generosity because that is what her father would have wanted.
