They were both 19 years old and attending UBC.

Olivia Sonja Robertson and Valentine Leborgne both had bright futures ahead of them.

But that tragically changed on Saturday November 24, 2013, when the Jeep Cherokee they were riding in crossed the centre line, just north of Lions Bay, slamming into an oncoming pickup truck.

According to all reports, Robertson was driving and Leborgne was the front seat passenger.

So, while the coroners service and RCMP are both investigating why this tragic accident took place friends and family mourn their loss. And they remember these two young ladies for the type of people they were.

What good, if any, can come of such a horrendous loss?

Is there anything that can be learned from this tragic accident?


While the Sea-to-Sky Hwy has been improved and is safer then it once was - REMEMBER !!

It's still a mountain highway.

It still has twist and turns.

And anyone who's headed to or from Whistler needs to have these two young woman in mind when they're tempted to "push it" or do something that may endanger their own lives or the lives of others.
