NATION VALLEY — It’s ‘Jersey Day’ today in support of the Humboldt Broncos — as the nation embraces a number of public gestures and shows of solidarity with the Saskatchewan Jr. A hockey team.
Sixteen people lost their lives in the April 6 bus crash that devastated the team and Humboldt community on April 6.
Wear a jersey and share the pictures in the comments section of the NVN Facebook post below. Wearing green and yellow if you do not own a jersey is acceptable as well.
At the Ontario Legislature, politicians took to Twitter to show their solidarity.
Proud to come together with MPPs from all parties at Queen's Park and Canadians coast to coast on #HumboldtJerseyDay. Our hearts go out to those grieving unimaginable loss and we stand in support of survivors facing the long road to recovery. #HumboldtStrong #HumboldtBroncos pic.twitter.com/4jcaFlx1E1

And the Chesterville & District Rotary Club affixed a hockey stick and flowers to the waterfront pavilion, a structure originally erected as a Club project.
Today we show our support for Humboldt. #JerseyForHumboldt
Our thoughts and prayers are with the @HumboltBroncos during this difficult time. #HumboldtStrong #PrayersForHumboldt pic.twitter.com/bJCq5D0DHs
