Nora Loreto, a writer and editor of the Canadian Association of Labour Media whose work has been carried in The Globe and Mail and Maclean’s, expressed shock on Sunday after learning $4 million dollars was raised for the families of the victims of a tragic bus crash in Saskatchewan.

Last week on Friday evening, a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team collided with a tractor trailer, killing fifteen people and injuring at least 14 others.

HuffPost Canada posted an article on Sunday detailing how funds were being raised to help the team members and their struggling families:

Nora Loreto reacted to the fundraiser with shock, saying: “This is a lot of money.”

“I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy,” Loreto said, “but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”

“I don’t want less for the families and survivors of this tragedy,” Loreto said in a follow-up tweet. “I want justice and more for so many other grieving parents and communities.”

Loreto’s comments didn’t go over very well.
