Following the tragic car crash that claimed the lives of two student pedestrians early Sunday morning, a memorial has been erected at the site of the incident — behind c̓əsnaʔəm house in the Totem Park residence area — on Northwest Marine Drive.

Such a devastating loss hangs heavy over the UBC community.

Family, friends, peers and strangers have come to pay their respects over the past few days, leaving flower bouquets, candles and handwritten messages. What’s more, the memorial provides a space to grieve, to reflect — to feel — for those who may need it.

Amid the tears and the anguish present on this small stretch of Marine Drive, there is also overwhelming love and camaraderie — evidence of the support we can offer one another in times of tragedy.

If you are in need of support right now, the following resources are available: UBC Counselling Services, Student Assistance Program, AMS Peer Support, Here2Talk and Crisis Centre BC.
