Help the Canadian victims of the Vegas shooting on GoFundMe

Several GoFundMe campaigns have been launched to help the Canadian victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Three Albertans and one British Columbian were among those killed, while other Canadians were seriously injured in the brutal attack.

A GoFundMe campaign was started in Lake Country with the hopes of taking some of the financial pressure off of Braden and his loved ones while he recovers. Canadians have shown their support for this family, helping to raise more than $18,375 in one day.
