Its a tragic thing, especially for a group so young.  Devastating for the community, even for the survivors, the feeling of guilt that they lived when their friends did not...  senseless loss of life, I'm sure we will find out more on why and how, but that doesn't matter, really.  The community, province and country will rally behind and give support.

But the support network is there, no doubt there will be something on HNIC, Don Cherry will obviously say something, other teams are adding their voices, local hotels are offering free rooms for families coming to the scene. 

The CFL has spoken up, the Riders issued a statement praising the strength of the people of the province, and Ambroise sending love and prayers on behalf of everyone in the league.  Many players have tweeted out support as well. 

There is a "Go Fund Me" page set up...  I donated already, if everyone here matched or beat my $20, it would help hit that goal...

Apparently the driver of the semi ran a stop sign and t-boned the bus. Driver of the semi is not injured. The intersection is apparently a dangerous one, and a family of 5 was killed there about 20 years ago.

I mean like it?s a good nice thing to do, but what do they need the money for?  Where is the $3.3 million going to go? Is it just money to make the families feel better?  They won?t have medical expenses because we live in Canada. What exactly is the money for?
