A few weeks ago, an unimaginable tragedy struck the family of Kim Collier and Jonathon Young, the ever-inspirational power couple at the forefront of the Vancouver Independent Stage industry. They lost their daughter Azra and her two young cousins; Phoebe and Fergus Conway, to a freakish flash cabin fire in Eagle Bay on the shores of Shuswap Lake.
It should be an immutable law of the universe that you don’t outlive your children. We join the community in offering our love and thoughts and deepest condolences to the families.
A memorial scholarship is being set up in the name of the children, and donations are being accepted to help with the costs of its development. If you would like to contribute you can drop a cheque off at any Bank of Montreal in Canada payable to Collier, Young, Conway In Trust, or you can mail one to
