***NOTE: This blog has been updated to reflect new developments, including the death of Humbolt Bronco’s athletic therapist Dayna Brons.
Canadians from all walks of life are pouring out their hearts in support of the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.
The Humboldt Broncos’ team bus was involved in collision with a transport truck that left 15 people dead. It was an accident that struck a chord with Canadians, many of whom send their own children on the road by bus to play the game they love, too.
Canadian landmarks flew the Humboldt Bronco’s colours.
Teams, regardless of sport, offered their help.
Regular Canadians, and Country 104 fans + artists, left their hockey sticks on the front porch.
Canadians also showed their support through music.
Canadian Country Music Hall of Famer Paul Brandt reworked the lyrics to one of his most famous hits, Small Towns and Big Dreams, for Humboldt.
Don’t forget, locally we’re honouring Humboldt in our own ways.
In Woodstock, Boston Pizza will hold a fundraiser Thursday night, too.
Canadians even showed support for the still unidentified truck driver involved in the accident.
Leave your sticks out for Humboldt tonight. #HumboldtStrong
