Posted on April 8, 2018 at 2:30pm 12 Comments

A 16th person has died from the accident -- physical trainer Dayna Brons, 24. One surviving player is a paraplegic and two are still in critical condition.



Meanwhile, the GoFundMe campaign for the families and the survivors has topped $11 million. My personal thanks go out to all those in Canada and around the world -- especially those of you in the US -- who contributed.

It's become a truism that Canadians are nice,…
