It is with deep regret to inform you that Linda Jones passed away on Sunday, June 1st at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary. Linda had been admitted to the hospital about a month ago and during that time she suffered a stroke and was unable to recover from it.
Linda was an instrumental part of the CLRA for the past 20 years. Many of you may remember her at our registration desk during our National AGM & Conferences, or have spoken to her on the phone or via email. She dedicated her life to the CLRA to ensure its long term sustainability and truly was the constant over the past few decades. She will be dearly missed.
During the past month, her dear friends Allan Legge and Indra Harry have been keeping me abreast of her health and have been instrumental in assisting the CLRA with gathering and organizing our effects from Linda’s home, picking up our mail and keeping us up-to-date with respect to Linda’s hospitalization. We greatly appreciate all the help they have given us.
Service arrangements have not been announced and we will be sending a notice to you all when they are confirmed.

CLRA/ACRSD: Building a nation-wide community of practitioners to reclaim and remediate environmentally-disturbed lands and waterways.
The Canadian Land Reclamation Association/Association canadienne de réhabilitation des sites dégradés (CLRA/ACRSD) is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1975. The Association encourages personal and corporate involvement where reclamation or rehabilitation of disturbed lands is planned or implemented.
Its members meet annually for technical discussion, information exchange and personal interaction. Local activities occur in Alberta, Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec where there are active provincial chapters.
The CLRA/ACRSD provides its members with up-to-date technical information through the publication of its newsletters, the magazine Canadian Reclamation and proceedings of its annual conferences. These publications allow the organization to have an informal, instructional role in the decision-making processes of reclamation/rehabilitation projects and to act as a forum for the dissemination of ideas and information pertinent to reclamation activities.
If you or your company are involved with or interested in reclamation of land or watercourses, environmental guidelines and/or enforcement, decommissioning, research (products, methods or equipment), or education, consider becoming a member of Canada\'s only national association concerned solely with reclamation.
