There’s a vigil tonight for two members of the Humboldt Broncos who were from our region of the province.
Parker Tobin and Conner Lukan were members of the Parkland Athletic Club—-so the vigil will be to celebrate their lives—and to retire their jersey numbers.
The vigil is happening at the Grant Fuhr Arena in Spruce Grove starting at 6pm.
-Next Tuesday—there’s going to be a public memorial for the three St. Albert players who were also killed in that collision.
Stephen Wack, Jaxon Joseph and Logan Hunter will be remembered at ceremony at Rogers Place on Tuesday.
It starts at 1pm.
The investigation into the cause of the Humboldt Broncos’ bus crash continues….
RCMP say they’ve done a lot of interviews trying to get some perspective—and they’ll soon be looking at computer data thats been recovered.
As soon as WE know something—we’ll pass it along.
And the “gofundme” campaign to help the victims and their families?
Its now at 8.4-million dollars….
As the investigation gets underway into the collision involving the Humboldt Broncos’ bus—-the Alberta government has suspended the safety-fitness certificate of the Calgary transport company whose truck was involved.
Adesh Deol Trucking Limited only has two trucks—and the one that collided with the bus–had been hauling peat moss.
The company owner says the driver is a good guy who’d been with them for about a month.
He isnt doing well right now–barely eating and sleeping.
The stories of support and inspiration are still coming in the wake of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy.
Ryan Straschnitzki of Airdrie broke his back in the collision—and he knows he wont be able to walk again.
But this is the guy who’s already decided he’s going to make the Canadian paralympic sledge hockey team.
He’s also been asking for a wheelchair—so he can visit some of his other teammates in the hospital.
So for now—his dad said thats his current goal—-but doctors want him to take it easy.
Four of the people who were hurt on that bus—are still in critical condition..
Ryan by the way—has been overwhelmed by all the support—and has told his dad he feels a bit guilty—and actually wants to know how HE can thank everyone….
More than 8-million dollars has now been raised through the “gofundme” campaign for the victims’ families—-and its still growing…
The “gofundme” people say they’ve never seen anything like it. (photo credit–Global)
