Here's How Halton is Honouring the Humboldt Broncos

The death toll is at 16 nearly a week following an horrific bus crash in Saskatchewan, and virtually every town and city - including Burlington, Oakville, and Milton - across Canada is honouring the victims by sporting jerseys on Thursday.

Humboldt Broncos trainer Dayna Brons, 24, died of her injuries on April 11 after the April 6 crash near Tisdale.

The collision, involving a truck, killed 15 people linked to the junior hockey team: Parker Tobin, 18 (he was initially misidentified as Xavier Labelle, who is still alive); Brody Hinz, 18; Darcy Haugan, 42; Logan Schatz, 20; Adam Herold, 16; Jaxon Joseph, 20; Mark Cross, 27; Tyler Bieber, 29; Stephen Wack, 21; Logan Hunter, 18; Conner Lukan, 21; Glen Doerksen, 59; Evan Thomas, 18; Jacob Leicht, 19; and Logan Boulet, 21.

Victims include players, coaches, event staff, and the bus driver, who were heading to a playoff game in Nipawin.

Bieber’s funeral is the first, taking place April 12. He was an announcer.

Thirteen others are injured.

#JerseysforHumboldt was started by a group of hockey parents.

The City of Burlington and the Towns of Oakville and Milton have lowered flags to half-mast to show support for the junior hockey team.

In addition, lights outside of Burlington City Hall along Brant St. will be green on Thursday night.

Thousands of Canadians are rallying around the hockey community, with many residents, small businesses, and corporate giants leaving hockey sticks outside of their doors.
