Jersey day

Thousands of Canadians are showing their support for the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. One way they did it was by making Thursday, April 12 ‘Jersey Day.’
People were being urged to wear any sports jersey or green and yellow clothes, which are the colours of the Broncos.
The campaign was started by a group of hockey moms in British Columbia as a way to support the Saskatchewan community at the centre of the tragedy. On April 6, the Humboldt Broncos were headed north to Nipawin, Saskatchewan for a playoff game when their bus collided with a semi-truck at a remote intersection near Tisdale, Saskatchewan. Sixteen passengers have died, including Slave Lake’s own Conner Lukan, and 13 others were injured.
Across Slave Lake residents showed their support on Jersey Day. One of them was a young student from C.J. Schurter Elementary school who changed her Edmonton Oilers jersey into a Humboldt Broncos jersey with the help of some green tape.
