Muskoka residents plan local vigil for victims of fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash
A memorial for hockey players killed in a bus crash is being held in Muskoka.
Bracebridge Deputy Mayor Rick Maloney is working with community advocate Tom Young to organize the local vigil for the Humboldt Broncos hockey players and coaches killed in the Friday crash. Young says anyone interested is invited to help plan the ceremony.
The meeting will be held at Boston Pizza in Bracebridge tonight at six. Young says this vigil isn’t just limited to Bracebridge residents either.
Fifteen people were killed after the team bus crashed into a truck in Saskatchewan. An outpouring of support for the victims’ families has come from across the country. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and hockey celebrity Don Cherry both attended the vigil held in Humboldt on Sunday.
A GoFundMe page set up for the families has also collected millions of dollars.
