There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that Lindsay would have continued to accomplish great things in her life. She was passionate and chose to make every moment count. She wholeheartedly gave her gifts of intelligence and compassion to the world. It didn’t matter if you were an orphan in Tanzania, a classmate from the U of C, an opposing hockey player, or a rancher from Cochrane – globally you were treated with respect.
The Foundation was conceived by Lindsay’s parents on February 18, 2008 as they wrote her obituary on an emergency flight from a family holiday with her 2 brothers and Grandma that she was unable to attend due to medical school commitments. Lindsay was killed as a seat belted passenger in a speeding, single car rollover on a clear dry road Sunday morning February 17, 2008, 700 metres from her parent’s home gateway. Since her death her family has been very active in supporting Alberta’s distracted driving legislation – as part of her legacy Lindsay’s family asks all to drive responsibly without distractions.
