Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer supporting Rene Faucher

Most of you have probably heard by now the very sad news about Rene Faucher. If you haven’t a few weeks ago, he caught a rut in the ice at the University of Ottawa and went head first into the boards at a pick up hockey game. The result is now he’s paralyzed from the chest down with at least a year of rehab in the hospital and no long-term disability insurance to help his family. Rene and his wife Dianne Douglas have three young children under the age of 5. The community has been rallying together to raise funds to support the family at this incredibly difficult time. One of the latest initiatives is with the The Ottawa 67’s Hockey Club. The Ottawa 67’s will donate 50% of revenue from this week’s online and box office ticket sales to a trust fund in Rene’s name to support rehabilitation and living expenses for Dianne and the three children. You can support Rene Faucher and his family by attending this Sunday’s game against the Guelph Storm. you can order tickets at and click on the René Faucher Fundraising icon. You may also order by telephone (613.232.6767) or simply show up on Sunday at the box office in the Coliseum Building at Lansdowne Park or at the Urbandale Centre box office and reference the Faucher Douglas Trust Fund when purchasing tickets. Game time is 2:00 PM. If you can’t attend, but want to support Rene, Dianne and the children you can make a donation at any local Scotiabank branch or by visiting
