Muskoka community continues to show support in wake of Humboldt tragedy

14 Avril 2018

"For the many thousands of people that love hockey, this has been an extremely hard time and we want to provide an opportunity for Prince George to come together in these trying circumstances".

"There's some strong parallels between Humboldt and our community in terms of closeness and togetherness and hockey bringing them together etc.", he said.

The athletic therapist for the Humboldt Broncos became the 16th person to die following a horrific bus crash in Saskatchewan last week.

Archer however said the trucking company has no record of collision before the Saskatchewan incident.

The truck driver was briefly detained and let go at the time.

Meanwhile truckers across Canada are re-thinking their actions on the road and some are said to be highly traumatized because it reminds them of their own close calls over the years. Classes resumed Tuesday with the focus on the well-being of students and staff. In Saturday's segment, Cherry had been at a loss for words and Hockey Night in Canada showed a montage of player and staff photos set to the Tragically Hip's "Wheat Kings".

"These were our kids", Garinger said, choking back tears.

He says a crisis response team is in place and counselling is being offered to anyone who needs it. "None of us are alone".

She says all the other Canadians at the Hawaiian tournament were similarly showing support.

"People are hurting and that's what we need to direct our energy toward".

"The gravity of the wounds varies from student to student".

About 2,500 hockey fans chanted "go Broncos go" one final time today for a 19-year-old described as "the classic underdog hockey player". Another 13 were injured.

The Brons family is asking for privacy from the media and will not be responding to interview requests, said the release.

In addition to the hockey sticks, Filby and Shulte are also working to create a banner for residents to sign with condolences and wishes, which will eventually be sent off to the town of Humboldt.

"This being such an unfortunate tragedy, I think people come together", she continued.
