NEW Country Dons Hockey Jerseys in Tribute to Humboldt Victims

BC-HKN--Bus Crash-Stanley Cup,224 Drake wears Humboldt Broncos jersey to Raptors' playoff opener against Wizards

It was only a week ago that we covered the horrific crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. The tragedy quickly claimed 15 lives - including players, the head coach, a statistician and a radio broadcaster - and by April 11 that number climbed to 16 as Broncos' athletic therapist Dayna Brons succumbed to her critical injuries.

"Very much, really wanted to show his support with jerseys today with putting the hockey sticks out in front of the house the other night", Knutson says.

Outside of the Renfrew County's administration building, a green and yellow #HumboldtStrong banner was hung beneath the county's crest, along with several hockey sticks placed on either side for the cross-Canada #SticksOutForHumboldt campaign.

A fan wears a Nipawin Hawks jersey with "Broncos" on the name bar as tribute to the Humboldt Broncos. The initiative 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.

Russian Federation condemns attack on Syria
US President Donald Trump announced the airstrikes in retaliation for Syrian President Bashar Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

"If everyone could just take a picture wearing a jersey, any jersey, and hashtag it, post it on social media, so when those families and those communities are ready they can have a look and see who was standing behind them during this tragedy". So far, the account has raised over $9 million to help the affected families with whatever they need to get them through this trying time.

David and Nicole D'hondt were watching their son Xavier play during the tournament and were proudly wearing Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys respectively. She wants to let Humboldt know it is not alone.

Thursday saw #JerseyDay take off across Canada and around the world, in which people were encouraged to wear their favourite team's colours as a way to honour the Broncos.
