Hwy.93 to be renamed Sarah Burke Memorial Highway

“Highway 93 will be known as the Sarah Burke Memorial Highway. The road runs for 24 kilometres through Simcoe County, the region where Burke was born and raised. ‘That’s a great idea,’ said Chloe Dufour-Lapointe, Canada’s silver medalist in freestyle moguls at the Sochi Olympics. ‘She was such a great skier, everything that you heard about her was only positive, a girl who smiles.’ ‘A perfect inspiration for young girls’, added Chloe’s sister Justine, who won moguls gold in Sochi.” As stated in an article written by the Canadian Press and posted on ctvnews.ca on March 26, 2014. Article continues with, “The 29-year-old Burke, who was born in Barrie, Ont., and grew up in Midland, died after a training accident in Utah in January 2012. Burke was a four-time X-Games champion and a driving force behind the inclusion of half pipe and slopestyle in the Olympics. The events made their Olympic debut last month in Sochi.” Read the full article here. | Raymond Matt, CFP, CLU, TEP, CHS
