Hello, we are in British Columbia on the west coast of Canada. A fishing accident happened on the east coast of Canada. Unfortunately 6 souls were lost to the sea.
The Chief William Saulis, a 15-metre scallop dragger based in Yarmouth Nova Scotia, triggered its emergency signal at 5:50 a.m. off Delaps Cove, near Digby, Nova Scotia said Lt.-Cmdr. Brian Owens of the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre.
Despite heavy weather making search efforts difficult, debris was spotted on heaving seas at 8:22 a.m., and during the morning, two life-rafts were found on shore with no one in them.
Even though we are on the west coast, we are all Canadians and would like to raise as mush money as possible to go the 6 families to help with expenses.
Alain D-Entremont of the Full Bay Scallop Association, a industry association representing the majority of the members of the Full Bay Scallop fishery, and Yarmouth Sea Products Nova Scotia, the owner of the Chief William Saulis, have set up an account called the Chief William Saulis Benevolent Fund with the Coastal Financial Credit Union, supported by the Hood Fraser d’Entremont law firm. Donations can be made to the account at any of the credit union’s branches across the Atlantic provinces starting Monday, or via Go Fund Me. All funds collected from this GoFundMe campaign will be added to that account and will then be provided to the families of these men: Charles Hot Dog Roberts, Leonard Layback Lenny Gabriel, Aaron Cogswell, Eugene Geno Francis, Dan Forbes, Mike Drake.
