Is there some kind of panic to distribute all this money right away? I'm no financial expert but I think ultimately it should all go to where it is most deserved and needed. Maybe the wisest thing to do is to disperse it a rate of $two million a year for as long as it lasts, after immediate bills have been paid. It will be a number of years before the final aftermath of this tragedy will be known and some of the money should be held back until then. Well invested it should be able to earn 8% - 10% with no problem. J.M.H.O.

I am not aware of any panic in getting the funds distributed, JLM. What the Broncos do with it is their business alone. I do know that there will be money needed for long-term care and depending on how severe the injuries, possibly life-long care for some of the boys.

What rest? It should all go to the players and their families.

Agreed, IRBS. If, and that is a BIG if considering the catastrophic injuries suffered in the crash, there is money left once the players and families have been completely taken care of, any remaining funds could go to the Broncos. But that is not my decision to make.

It was just a question, Mowich, based on something I read in one of the posts.

I fully agree with that IF everyone's losses and needs are equal.

Would any money given to the injured reduce the amount paid by their insurer?

We're all aware of how sleazy insurance companies are using any excuse no matter how lame to not pay and I could see the nauseating pukes trying to weasel out of this.

Common sense tells me no! I guess ultimately it lies with what the fine print says. I know speaking for myself if I had such a policy and there was something in the fine print to that effect, then I would just go to another insurance co. BUT when shopping for insurance it's possible people don't think of those things.

Atta boy, Bill. It's a pretty competitive industry and their main concern is just trying to make a buck. We have to be as shrewd (slimy) as they are. With insurance the main concern is to cover loss - there's not supposed to be money available to buy beer.

I see the Forum idiot objects. He just lacks the balls to say why!

They aren't and they wont' be. We already know that, JLM having seen one lucky lad walk out of the hospital while another still remains there, paralyzed from the waist down. There is no equality of injuries here. As I said before, and will repeat again, this is not OUR business. We have no say in distribution of the funds and rightly so.

"Because the deaths and injuries resulted from a road accident in Saskatchewan, many costs will be covered by SGI, the province's public insurance program.

"We do have a very comprehensive no-fault program," said SGI president Andrew Cartmell. "I think it's one of the best in the country."

Benefits available for people who are injured range from travel and accommodation costs for families visiting their loved ones in hospital to long-term rehabilitation and "trying to get the person back to ... their previous standard of living," he said.

The no-fault system helps eliminate delays in insurance payments while investigators determine the cause of vehicle crashes, Cartmell said.

"We don't care about who's at fault in the accident. We care about rehabilitating and care right away and that's we're able to do."

Saskatchewan insurance also covers funeral costs up to about $10,000, plus additional death benefits, including grief counselling. "

I Beg Your Pardon but that's just lying mealy mouthed Bee Ess from a gov't agency dedicated to staying in business by not paying claims-I know because we have a similar system here in BC.

Profiting from tragedy? Redbubble.com pulls Humboldt T-shirt featuring Halifax cartoonist's work

HALIFAX — An Australian website has stopped selling a T-shirt featuring a misappropriated Halifax newspaper cartoon about the Humboldt bus crash tragedy.
Bruce MacKinnon of the Halifax Chronicle Herald said earlier this week that he was notified his cartoon was on a shirt selling for $42.63 on Redbubble.com — adding the seller was crassly trying to profit from a tragedy.
Many thanks to Carolyn HIllbom who alerted us to Redbubble's illegal appropriation of the #HumboldtBroncos cartoon.

The cartoon shows hockey players representing other provinces supporting a hockey player from Saskatchewan after 16 players and staff with the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team were killed when their bus collided with a transport truck.
Redbubble has issued a tweet saying that in line with its policy, it will be donating all company profits from work related to the Humboldt accident to charity.
The web site is still selling multiple Humboldt t-shirts with common phrases like Pray for Humboldt or Humboldt Strong that would not be subject to copyright.

'We never gave them permission': Error-filled Humboldt Broncos obituaries appear on website selling services
Canadian Press

Some families of Humboldt Broncos bus crash victims are surprised to learn that error-riddled obituaries of their loved ones have been posted on a website that’s selling flowers, as well as online memorial candles, and that the site isn’t donating the money.
Eleven of the 16 people who died when the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team’s bus and a semi collided April 6 are listed on the Everhere website, which calls itself one of North America’s largest databases for obituaries.
But Russell Herold, whose 16-year-old son, Adam, died in the tragedy, says his family never agreed to post the information, which incorrectly lists his son’s place of death as Wolseley, Sask., east of Regina.
In this screenshot, an obituary for Adam Scott Herold who died in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash is seen on the website Everhere.com (Screenshot/Everhere.com)
That’s approximately 300 kilometres south of where the crash occurred.
“We never gave them permission. It’s obvious when the birthplace and place of death are wrong,” Herold said in an email.
The site’s obituary for Dayna Brons, the team’s athletic therapist, states the 24-year-old died in Lake Lenore, Sask., which was where she went to school, not where she died.
“It makes me a little uncomfortable that they’re profiting off it without permission of the families,” Eric Brons, Dayna’s brother, says.
Everhere did not respond when contacted by The Canadian Press on the weekend.
On its website, the company states it “serves to inform the public of obituaries that are already on the Internet by categorizing them by city.”
It says families can share the obituaries online to invite people to the funerals, which it says saves time for grieving families during a difficult time.
“There is no obligation for anyone to purchase anything from our website. It is just there so people have the option and to make things simpler for those who wish to send flowers, as flower orders are automatically sent to the closest local florist of the recipient,” the website states.
“The candles are a religious intention. We offer the service if someone would like to light a candle as an act of love towards that family,” the site says, noting that fees for lighting a candle go “towards the development of our company, since our company provides our online services for free.”

The site says errors can be corrected, or obituaries removed, by contacting the company.
A lawyer in Newfoundland and Labrador, Erin Best, said earlier this year that she was attempting to certify a class-action lawsuit before the Federal Court of Canada against an obituary website, Afterlife Network Inc.
A statement of claim, which has not been proven in court, alleges the site contains hundreds of thousands of obituaries and photographs copied without permission from the websites of Canadian funeral homes and newspapers, and that it generates revenues by advertising and permitting users to “light virtual candles and send flowers.”
The Jan. 11 document says the reproductions infringe copyright, and that Afterlife hasn’t sought permission from the copyright holders.
The website for Afterlife now redirects to Everhere.

Dan Pollack, a copyright lawyer in Toronto, says copying obituaries and reproducing them verbatim without permission, along with photographs, could be a copyright infringement issue. But he says that if the obituaries just give biographical information about the individuals, such as when they were born or when they died, that would probably not constitute copyright infringement.
None of the obituaries for people killed in the Humboldt Broncos crash contain photographs.
But Pollack says that doesn’t mean the obituaries aren’t problematic.
“Getting beyond all of the nitty-gritty of the legal issues, you’re talking about things that are incredibly sensitive and there really could be substantial backlash if it’s seen that this site is somehow profiting from this tragedy,” Pollack says.
Hockey sticks, messages and other items continue to be added to a memorial at the intersection of a fatal bus crash that killed 16 members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team last week near Tisdale, Sask. on Saturday, April 14, 2018. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Liam Richards
The Funeral Service Association of Canada says in a statement that it opposes the practice of using information in online obituary sites without the specific permission of families.
“This is an intrusion into a grieving family’s privacy and appears to have a commercial overtone,” the statement on Sunday said.
The organization encourages families to contact their provincial funeral service regulator, or the Funeral Service Association of Canada for assistance if they encounter such incidents.

Comedy duo apologizes for ’Indian with STDs’ joke at Broncos tribute concert

SASKATOON — An American comedy duo is apologizing for a joke they made at a tribute concert for the Humboldt Broncos hockey team that was described as racist and inappropriate by some concertgoers.
Bruce Williams and Terry Ree, who refer to themselves as “The Indian and the White Guy,” emceed the concert in Saskatoon on Friday.
At one point, Williams sang a song to Ree which included the line “shake it for the Indian with STDs.”
Some members of the audience took to social media to express their outrage, with several saying they left the venue.
Williams and Ree posted on Facebook late Saturday apologizing to anyone who was offended by their routine.
They said they failed to consider the emotional nature of the event, which was billed as a tribute to remember the 16 people who died in the April 6 bus crash.
“Williams and Ree sincerely apologize to all offended by their humour at the recent show in Saskatoon,” the duo wrote.
“The Great Province of Saskatchewan has been under a tremendous amount of strain and heartache, and we failed to take into account situational awareness and its toll on the citizens who live therein. Peace and love to all.”
Claire Aistine, who attended the concert with her daughters and son-in-law, said it was more than just one line in a single song that was offensive. She said the show began with beautiful tributes, but then got uncomfortable quickly when Williams and Ree came out.
Aistine, whose children are Dene through their father, said they were all taken aback when the duo introduced themselves as “The Indian and The White Guy.”
“This continues. Like the derogatory statements that I heard — using the word ’squaw,’ and statements like ’Indians don’t work,’ ’dirty Indians’ was another term that was used — very stereotypical connections with the casino and things like that,” Aistine said.
“My girls and I looked at each other and said, ’Whoa!”’
Premier Scott Moe addressed the crowd at one point during the concert, but it wasn’t clear if he was present when the emcees were performing.
An email to Moe’s spokesman about whether the premier heard any of the comments Ree and Williams made was not returned on Sunday.
A spokesman for Country Thunder Music Festival, which booked the evening’s musical acts, said in an email that it had not received any complaints but was aware of some Facebook posts and the apology by Williams and Ree.
“Williams and Ree are veteran comedians who are approaching their 50th year in show business. I guess it’s true that not everyone is going to appreciate every joke, and I’m sorry if anyone has been offended in any way during what was a spectacular evening,” Gerry Krochak said in the email.
Williams and Ree have been on the bill as hosts for Country Thunder, and Craven Country Jamboree as it was known prior to 2016, every July for over a decade.
Their website describes them as a comedy team out of the Dakotas, noting, “The message they bring is one of love and harmony, with an underlying note of deceit and debauchery.”
Aistine said she and her family didn’t walk out of the show because one of her daughters really wanted to see Dallas Smith. She said it appeared Williams and Ree toned down their performance towards the very end of the show, and she suspected they may have received a warning.
She said a few people around them laughed at the jokes, but not everyone.

'ABSOLUTE JERKS': Paralyzed Humboldt Broncos player's name stolen for phoney fundraiser

CALGARY — Tom and Michelle Straschnitzki have seen the best in people over the last three weeks as their son has worked to recover after being paralyzed in a crash between his hockey team’s bus and a transport truck.
On Monday, they also saw the worst.
Tom Straschnitzki said he woke up early and was alerted on Twitter that someone using Ryan’s name had set up a fake account and was seeking money for a GoFundMe campaign.
It had Ryan’s picture, as well as a photo of the Humboldt Broncos Saskatchewan junior hockey team.

“I phoned him and said, ’Is this your Twitter account?’ And he freaked out and went, ’No, it’s not. Everyone is going to think this is fake. My teammates are going to hate me thinking I’m trying to get money,”’ Tom Straschnitzki told The Canadian Press.
“It took a long time to calm him down. I said, ’We’ll take care of it. I kind of warned you this stuff can happen.”’
Straschnitzki alerted a couple of friends who contacted GoFundMe which shut down the campaign. Tweets from the fake account, which had over 1,700 followers, were deleted and the name was changed at least twice by mid-afternoon.
Straschnitzki tweeted a message to the person responsible for his son’s fake account and suggested that he “should meet me at the hospital today. This way he will be closer to emergency.”
He’s most worried about the impact on Ryan.

“Ryan wears everything on his sleeve. He’s kind of a little too trusting but now he knows this could happen,” he said.
“But if you look at the odds out of the millions that are supporting Ryan, that’s just one.”
Michelle Straschnitzki had hoped it wouldn’t happen, but said too often people try to take advantage of a tragedy.
“It reminds you that there are absolute jerks out there,” she said. “In the world that we live in, it’s not surprising. It’s disheartening, but it’s not surprising.”
A spokeswoman for GoFundMe said no funds were raised by the campaign, and the campaign organizer has also been banned from using the GoFundMe platform in the future.
“We have a dedicated team that works around the clock to monitor campaigns set up to support the families and victims of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy, and they are continuing to review all campaigns,” Rachel Hollis wrote in an email.
Hollis added it is not permitted to mislead, defraud, or deceive any user on a GoFundMe campaign. If it happens, she said GoFundMe takes swift action which can include removing the campaign, banning the user,and refunding donors.
Ryan, 19, continues to undergo treatment and rehabilitation.
The collision April 6 in rural Saskatchewan is still being investigated. RCMP have only said the transport truck was in the intersection when the crash occurred.
The Broncos were on their way to a playoff game when 16 people were killed and 13 were injured.

Truck driver charged in Broncos bus crash in court

Quote:

MELFORT, Sask. - The case of a truck driver charged in the fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash has been adjourned until later this month.
Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, who is 29, is charged with 16 counts of dangerous driving causing death and 13 counts of dangerous driving causing bodily injury.
Neither the Calgary man nor his lawyer, Satnam Aujla, were in court Tuesday.
Aujla phoned in to say he needed more time to review the particulars and he was granted an adjournment until Oct. 23.
Sixteen people, including 10 players, were killed and 13 players were injured when the junior hockey team's bus and a transport truck driven by Sidhu collided at a Saskatchewan intersection April 6.
Sidhu, who was not hurt, was released on $1,000 bail in July under conditions he not drive and that he surrender his passport.
RCMP have said they will not release any details of the investigation or what they believe happened.
The Mounties have only said that the truck was in the intersection when the collision occurred.

I doubt there are any equal losses, JLM. What value does one put on a dead son, husband, father, daughter? What value on one who is paralyzed from the waist down? What about the boys who did not suffer such severe physical injuries but still were hurt? How does one judge the amount of trauma these boys have gone through and which may the hardest factor to deal with. Bodies will heal to the extent they can with time but a wounded soul takes longer. I am heartened by the fact that Humboldt is such a close-knit community and those who are suffering will be comforted.

That said, what they do with the money is up to Humboldt and the Broncos.

This was just ugly, and tragic, and avoidable.

The information coming out was conflicting at
the time, but this is what we put together in the
days after the crash long before the RCMP
released anything. I'm not pointing fingers in
either direction as I think both drivers were
negligent but that's irrelevant at this point.

Sunset that day was about 6:30PM & the
accident happened about 5pm or so. It was
winter. The Truck was traveling westbound.
The sun would be low in the sky and bouncing
off the snow.

Maybe the driver of the truck came to a full stop,
or maybe a rolling stop...we'll never know for sure
but he was facing a stop sign with flashing lights
so he wouldn't miss it all together. I won't say that
it would be impossible for the driver to miss that
stop sign but it would have been very improbable.

The cab of the tractor would have cleared the inter
-section completely when the bus hits the leading
(first) trailer just in front of the tri-axle grouping. there
are no skid (braking skid marks) by either vehicle.

The bus punched the trailer (the only rubber marks on
the pavement on the South West corner of the inter
-section) hard enough that the trailer deck slices into
the front of the bus and the trailer frame on the drivers
side is completely twisted. The bus is spun 180 degrees
as the truck & trailers are flipped over into the S.W. Ditch.
Cargo goes everywhere. 16 people lose their lives as a
result of this accident. Now for the "what if's..."

If the driver came to a full stop or a rolling stop we may
never know for certain, but if he didn't enter the intersection,
16 people wouldn't have lost their lives that day. I'm assuming
the driver of the truck didn't have the experience to judge just
how long (elapse time) was needed for his combination to
fully clear that intersection be it from a full stop or a rolling stop.

If the driver of the bus was paying attention to the road in
front of him, there would be some kind of braking skid marks.
The length of the skid would indicate when driver of the bus
noticed a tractor trailer combo completely across the highway
from one side of the #35 to the other. There are no skid marks.

In my opinion, both the driver of the truck & the driver of
the bus where both lacking in training. The driver of the
truck I'm assuming was lacking in experience, and the
driver of the bus would have been distracted by some
-thing instead of watching the road in front of him. It does
not change the outcome at all and is just my opinion.

Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason says Sukhmander Singh of Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. is charged with non-compliance with federal and provincial safety regulations over a six-month period.
EDMONTON — The owner of an Alberta trucking company involved in the fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash has been charged.
Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason says Sukhmander Singh of Adesh Deol Trucking is charged with non-compliance with federal and provincial safety regulations over a six-month period.
Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when a semi-trailer and the Broncos hockey bus collided in Saskatchewan last April.
Officials with Alberta Transportation say eight charges have been laid.
A department spokesman says a federal Crown lawyer will be handling the prosecution.
When reached in Calgary, Singh said he didn’t have any comment on the charges.
The charges include failure to maintain logs for drivers hours of service, failure to monitor the compliance of a driver under safety regulations, having more than one daily log for any day and failure to have or follow a written safety program.
“The charges follow an investigation that was completed by Alberta Transportation into the collision,” Mason said. “The investigation found multiple instances of non-compliance of various transportation regulatory requirements in a six-month period.”
Singh’s first court appearance is Nov. 9 in Calgary.
