The City of St. John’s is adding their collective voice to the outpouring of support for the dead, and those left reeling from the bus crash in Humboldt, Saskatchewan.

A moment of silence was held at the weekly council meeting last night, as councillors wore green to honor the Broncos. For the rest of the week, the public is being invited to sign messages of support on banners at city community centres that will be sent to the City of Humboldt as a showing of solidarity in difficult times.

The tragedy that happened on April 6 has shaken Canada to its core – 15 dead and 14 injured when a tractor-trailer collided with the junior hockey team’s bus. One of the deceased is Broncos goaltender Parker Tobin whose parents are from this province.
