Apparently it didn’t take the Warriors long to rebound from their NBA Finals defeat

first_img“We had the entire team at the house and we were drinking some wine and having some fun, … Last we saw the Warriors — at least the ones who were ambulatory — they were congratulating the Toronto Raptors and taking one last look around Oracle Arena.One could only imagine the intense wrenching disappointment, the pangs of regret, the abject melancholy they felt.Seriously. You have to imagine it because that’s not exactly what the players were feeling.Says who? Says Stephen Curry.last_img read more

Court asked to give interim payment to victims of Humboldt Broncos bus

first_imgSASKATOON – A court hearing has been rescheduled for Aug. 15 to provide victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash with $50,000 each from a massive fundraising campaign.The Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc. will ask the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench to approve the interim payment to the 13 survivors and the families of the 16 people who died after the April 6 crash.“There are affidavit materials filed that establish that certain … families of persons who were travelling on the bus at the time of the accident have suffered financial hardship and require some relief against that — and that’s the purpose of the distribution,” said Jeff Lee, a lawyer who represents the fund.A GoFundMe campaign was created immediately after the crash and received $15.2 million in donations from all over the world.Saskatchewan has legislation known as the Informal Public Appeals Act, which outlines a court-supervised process to support the distribution of crowdfunding donations.The hearing on how to distribute the money, which was initially set for Aug. 13, was rescheduled at the request of the court.Lee said he will also ask the court to approve a committee made up of retired judge Dennis Ball; Mark Chipman, chairman of the company that owns the Winnipeg Jets; Olympic gold medallist Hayley Wickenheiser; Dr. Peter Spafford, who’s in charge of head and neck surgery at the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine; and Kevin Cameron, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response.That committee would prepare a report with recommendations to the memorial fund board on how to distribute the rest of the money.“The objective would be to have the recommendations come back within 60 days after the Aug. 15 court hearing and then see the matter in court shortly thereafter for a final disposition,” said Lee.The court documents state the non-profit group has received free professional services from its law firm, bank and accountants.GoFundMe has deducted roughly $483,000 from the money raised to cover 2.9 per cent payment processing fees. An additional $49,000 is being held back by GoFundMe in a temporary reserve in case any donors challenge their contribution.last_img read more
