Remembering Krista

In memory of WEPAC member, Krista Reid, who passed away on March 31st, 2015. Our deepest sympathies go out to her husband Scott, her children, Cadence and Quinn, and her other family members.

cadence219Krista was an ardent supporter of the anti-fracking movement here in New Brunswick, and in particular here in Albert County. She inspired us with her beautiful smile, her enthusiasm and passion, incredible creative talent, devotion to community, and her love for her family and others.

She was a master organizer and encouraged her children, Cadence and Quinn, to also be active in safeguarding the health of our community, encouraging them to talk to their friends, write letters to politicians, draw pictures, and take part in protests.

IMG_1308a005_2With so much at stake, she could never understand how other young parents could be too busy to take an active role in safeguarding the health of their community.  So she wrote letters, organized children in the community to create works of art that were auctioned off as a WEPAC fundraiser, constructed the ‘Protecting What’s Important’ float, then recruited children to be part of two local parades (and won a prize).  As well, she created the award-winning ‘Agent Jack No Frack’ and Mother Earth‘ scarecrows for the Albert Exhibition Fair.
