    Now 15 passed away
    I grew up in Sask so this hits close to the heart.
    Noticed in the Jets Blackhawks game all the players are wearing Broncos name on the back of their jersey.

    Player Logan Boulet on life support. Will donate organs.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/4130701/h...donate-organs/

    Boulet’s father Toby told Global News that the 21-year-old’s heart remained strong as of Saturday night, and officials have found a positive match for all organs that can be donated.The organs will be harvested overnight Saturday.
    The family said in a statement that Logan signed his donor card as soon as he turned 21, and that even in his passing he would be a hero.

    This hits me hard as well. I've visited SK many times over the years, my in-laws lived about an hour and 15 minutes outside of Saskatoon.

    And my father in law, a cool guy and mentor to me, was killed a year and half ago in a traffic accident. The other driver was high as a kite on meth and pot, driving a big work truck and obliterated the vehicle my father in law was driving, also killed a passenger. He goes to trial next week.

    Crazy thing is when I went up for the funeral two fatal accidents happened on back to back nights in the area. The first was three teenagers who drank their faces off and rolled the car into roadside ditch at high speed, all were killed. Then the next night another teenager, a hockey player and it was reported that he was the nephew of Jarett Stoll, was killed when a drunk driver ran into his car on the road. It seems that some think because it is a rural area with not that much traffic that its okay to drive drunk or high.

    Good thing is the RCMP and the Crown Prosecutors have had enough and now are going after these types hard.

    My mother in law is down here in with us at the moment and she has been checking up on this story. The driver of the truck was taken in and then released, so it sounds like he was not on anything when the crash happened. But was he speeding, checking his phone, not paying attention?

    Like I said this hits hard, it's heartbreaking and brought back some the hurt and anger that I had a year ago.
