Hello, this is M posting for my mom who I have been out of contact with since Monday, the day of the incident. I wanted to just make a quick post informing everyone that yes mom is OK!!!!

Sadly, on Monday Robert and Irene Booth, two members of my mom's cross Canada bike trip, were struck and killed on the Trans-Canada high way by a pick up truck. This was very upsetting news to all the participants of the trip as well as for everyone back home. I just wanted to let everyone know that my mom is OK and will be blogging as soon as she is finds internet connection. Last I heard, they were sleeping in a rec center because their supply truck was stuck behind the road closure. Here is an article..

Well, have a nice weekend everyone



  1. Thanks for the update M. When you talk to your Mom please let her know that I am keeping her, the Booth family and the team in my prayers. I can't imagine what they are all going through and I commend the team for carrying on.

  2. I'm so glad Elaine is fine. I, too, am keeping them all in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. I keep thinking and thinking of you all and wishing you comfort and peace.
    Hugs and more hugs!
