        It looks like the explosion was in the reception area. This is so sad there are reports that people died in the expolosion.

         

        My heart goes out to those affected by this.

            That's so sad.  It sounds like an accident (one newspaper said potentially natural gas methane built up from a nearby swamp). My sympathies go out to the families.

              They've now reported that one of the fatalities is a groom from Nanaimo, BC. My thoughts are with the family during this terrible time...

                I am so saddened to hear of this tragic accident.  We are getting married there on December 16.  Apparently it was a natural gas explosion in the platinum lounge (the VIP area).  My father was to be staying in this area of the resort.  It really makes you realize how fragile life really is.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those that have lost loved ones.

                    I just heard that the death toll is up to 7 including the mother of the groom, so sad.

                      One of the ones who passed away was a man from Nanaimo, who was there for his wedding.  So awful, I am just sick to my stomach over this.
