Donning jerseys to show support for Humboldt

Students at Prince Edward Collegiate Institue joined many County residents and businesses and thousands of Canadians who wore a sports jersey, or donned a green ribbon, on Thursday in honour of the victims of last week’s deadly bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. The idea of trading in a weekday outfit for #JerseysForHumboldt was inspired by a group of British Columbia hockey moms to send a message of support for the families who lost loved ones in the Humboldt crash.
County residents have also joined the #Put your Stick Out trend to pay tribute to the 16 people who have died as a result of the crash last Friday night. Rob Garden photo

    I am amazed of the response of the general public. At my place of employment everyone has stepped up and participated in one way or another. This accident has caused a ripple effect that is much larger than most would have ever thought possible. I hope this show of support makes it back to the those who lost a friend or family member and to those who are still recovering from their injuries due to this terrible crash. May God be with you all.
