Honoring Claredon Robicheau

Co-Founder, distinguished Board Member, Community Transportation Nova Scotia

 

Dear CT-NS Members, As you may already be aware, our distinguished Board Member Claredon Robicheau passed away on January 6. Claredon often jokingly described himself as the ‘Grandfather of community based transportation’, having been a founder of Transport de Clare, the first community-based transportation service in the province. Claredon was also a founding member of the Nova Scotia Community Based Transportation Association, now Community Transportation Nova Scotia (CT-NS), as well as the Rural Transportation Association (RTA). As a Board member, Claredon was always a good humored advocate for community transportation as well as for the disability community. While we work on a way to recognize Claredon’s enormous contribution to our organization and to community based transportation in this province, we will all miss his cheerful presence around our Board table.   More information about Claredon’s legacy is available at the link below.   http://www.digbycourier.ca/news/premier-mourns-loss-to-province-after-founder-of-transport-de-clare-passes-away-175431/ Sincerely,   Reg Johnston Board Chair Community Transportation Nova Scotia
