Tragic Accident Claims 15 Lives in Canadian Hockey Community
RPRL- "Horrible tragedy. It is a loss for not only the families and friends of the victims but for all of us across Canada. Hockey is our game and all of its players, coaches and staff are members of our extended family. My thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this terrible accident." That was the statement from Winter Silversmith's RL typist yesterday in response to the terrible accident that claimed 15 lives in a collision on Friday.
Fourteen members of the Humboldt Broncos team (Saskatchewan, Canada) died at the scene and another fourteen injured (one of whom later passed in hospital) when a semi truck collided with their bus on a highway intersection Friday on their way to a game. The tragedy has been felt across the nation of hockey fans and family members.
The City of New Hope, Corran, GCG has announced that all flags in the city will be lowered today to half mast until April 23, one day for each life lost in this accident. "We will be setting up a permanent memorial to the tragedy later this month" said Mr. Silversmith this morning.
