I just wanted to extend my condolences in regards to Elinor Hudon. I had the honour of working with Elinor at BCIT for nearly 10 years. I worked in the HR department and Elinor for the FSA. We solved many problems together. Elinor always gave me a little Christmas gift each year – I still have a small bag she gave me. I’ve treasured it for many many years as a reminder of the positive impact of working in cooperation with the Union. It was a valuable lesson that I learned from Elinor.

There is nobody like Elinor – she was a gem of a person to work with. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Kind Regards,

Marnie Wright
Associate Vice President Human Resources

I first met Elinor in the summer of 1963. She was 14, I was 15. We were both with our families heading down under, for a new life in Australia. After that trip, jump ahead 46 years to BCIT, where we both worked and eventually figured out why we seemed familiar. Small world, what a coincidence! We compared photos from relatives and friends on the dock at New Westminster, BC, back in '63, as the passenger-freighter the Lakemba pulled out to sea. It's so sad to hear of Elinor's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and with Elinor, one of the finest people anyone could know.

I'm surprised and shocked to read of Elinor's passing. We worked together over many 'issues' over many years at BCIT, Elinor on the Union side of the table, me on the management side. When Elinor was in the room, an abundance of logic and common sense were there, too. We shared a mutual admiration and respect, and I enjoyed working with her very much. She was 'much admired' across the campus for decades. My condolences to family and friends, and also to her Union colleagues and faculty members who she represented and supported firmly, honestly, compassionately, and with that ever-present common sense. Brian Antonson, retired associate dean of BCIT Broadcast and Media Communications.
