    Sad to hear of the passing of such a great Canadian. Condolences to her family and the many she served throughout her career.

    It's worth appreciating: Cindy's 15h10 crossing of Lake Ontario at age 16, in 1974, is still the record for the fastest female crossing. It's a 51 km route. And a 42-year old record!
