You have to find the time to visit this train (pictures) when it stops in your city or town (more than 100 stops in all). A once in 100 years event to soak up some history and be a part of Canadian culture. Don’t miss it, it gets underway in Vancouver Sept. 9th.

This has nothing to do with football, but if you are so inclined, donate what you can. $38,000 raised so far. Micro-donations from many can go a long way and have no impact on us what-so-ever.

If you don’t care to help or can’t, that is fine. But scolding won’t bring her out of the coma or bring her home. Faced with our own crisis some day, from big to small, would we rather receive a scolding or a helping hand?

I was unaware Harrison was related to one of the victims and involved in TSN’s documentary on the subject. It is a Canadian tragedy with 62 victims and this will raise awareness of the crash for many.

Update: Here’s the story about the visit.
