Judge approves Humboldt Broncos GoFundMe distribution

Judge approves Humboldt Broncos GoFundMe distribution A Saskatchewan judge has approved a committee's recommendation on how to distribute $15.2 million raised in a GoFundMe campaign after the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Justice Neil Gabrielson agreed that families who lost a loved one in the April 6 crash should received a $525,000 payout. He also accepted a recommendation of $475,000 for each of the 13 surviving players. Both payouts include an interim payment of $50,000 already approved in August. The judge said he felt the committee was reasoned in its decision. "It's a rare occasion that from great tragedy comes great generosity," Gabrielson said in a Saskatoon courtroom Wednesday.
