Ottawa, ON – Skate Canada would like to extend deepest sympathies to the many families who lost a loved one in the tragic motor vehicle collision in Bathurst, New Brunswick. It is with deep sadness that we mourn the loss of Elizabeth (Beth) Lord, who lost her life in the accident. She was a long-time volunteer in the skating community. An active member of the Bathurst Figure Skating Club, serving as their Test Chairperson, Beth was a Data Specialist with the Skate Canada New Brunswick Section. Beth’s daughter Katie, who is still recovering from the accident, is a figure skater, and serves as the Athlete Representative for the New Brunswick Section.
We join Skate Canada New Brunswick in offering our heartfelt condolences to the Lord family, and our best wishes to Katie as she recovers in hospital.
