There were tears and hugs as hundreds gathered to remember the 15 people who were killed on Friday when Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus collided with a tractor trailer leaving a massive hole in this prairie community of less than six thousand.
The Saskatchewan arena where the team was to have played one more playoff game last night, turned into the venue for communal sorrow as friends, family and an entire community packed the 18 hundred seat arena for last night’s vigil to begin the long road back to healing.
fighting back emotion, humboldt mayor Rob Munch struggled for the right words, using a hockey analogy suggesting they’ll have to ‘stick-handle’ their way through this.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also in attendance to honour the victims and their families.
Meanwhile, the intersection where the crash happened, re-opened to traffic yesterday afternoon as the RCMP continue their investigating. The story has captured headlines around the world. The queen also issuing a statement on how saddened she was by the news.
