The Corktown Board was devastated to hear of the news that the person struck and killed at Mill and Cherry St. on November 4th, 2020 was our beloved Tricia Waldron; the long time Editor of the Corktown News.
Tricia was a past CRBA Board Member and had just handed over Editor duties of the Corktown News in our most recent issue. Along with this she had spent the last 2 years advocating and raising funds for the new Anishnawbe Health Centre being built in Canary District.
A service at Little Trinity Church was held on Saturday, November 14, 2020 and live streamed on the churches website to thousands. Since learning of this tragic situation, we’ve also seen dozens of community members come forward with well wishes and stories about Tricia.
While our team is heartbroken about the news, our hearts have been filled with the stories of her contributions and the impact she had on so many people and the Corktown neighbourhood. If you had the chance to speak with Tricia in the last couple years, you’ll know how passionate she was about the new Anishnawbe Health Centre being built in Canary District. We’re urging anyone that can to support her final life project with a donation to Anishnawbe Health.
She was as kind as she was tough. Some of us will forever remember her capability to argue a point with the vigour of a (good) Politician. Others will remember her passion and capability to create excitement around a project. We will all remember her immeasurable giving spirit and bright mind.
Please join us in mourning the loss of our friend, a community leader and a passionate human. Tricia, you will be remembered.
