Logan Boulet of Lethbridge could help as many as six people through organ donation

However, on Sunday, as Canada was reeling from the news of the horrific bus crash that claimed the lives of 15 people in Saskatchewan, details began to emerge about the organ donations of Humboldt Broncos player Logan Boulet.

Boulet signed an organ donor card upon turning 21, just weeks ago.

Elsewhere, Ontario's Trillium Gift of Life Network told Newsweek that 182 people had registered to become organ donators by Sunday, compared to 67 on March 25.

The Canadian Press reports that by Monday, April 8, almost 900 people in Alberta had expressed interest in becoming an organ donor, compared to the average of 425 normally seen over a two-day period.

According to the statement, six people need to receive the "gift of life" from Boulet, whereas other organs are donated to science.

Any Manitoban looking to become an organ donor can do so by registering at signupforlife.ca.

In British Columbia, from Friday evening as donors have registered 363 man, as the representative of the BC Transplant said by e-mail.

Its Director warned, "we are concerned that making a legislative change based on poor evidence risks undermining public trust in the organ donation system, and could have serious consequences for rates of organ donation".

"There's a sensitivity, even in 2018, about organ donation and transplantation and it needs to be diminished", she said.

"The only thing that gets in the way is procrastination", she said.

"What makes Logan such a hero is that he actually took action", Gavsie said.

They want to remind people it only takes one person to save a life.

"In the absence of the facilities at the GMC, the blood samples of the donors and the recipients are sent to Mumbai for tissue typing or matching which at times could be inconvenient and hence there is a need to set up these facilities at the GMC", said a senior faculty member. "So we've just tried to make it as simple as possible and to let people know how big of an impact they can have by taking that few seconds to register themselves".
