Blood donations spike after Humboldt Broncos bus crash


The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, meanwhile, said it will resume its playoffs Saturday.

The tragedy has shocked Canada, where ice hockey is not just a national sport but a huge part of its identity, especially in rural communities where many children begin to play as soon as they can walk.

What started as a Canada-wide day to show support for the victims and families affected by the tragic Humboldt bus crash has turned into a worldwide movement.

24-year-old Dayna Brons died of her injuries Wednesday afternoon.

"The important thing you can do, as Logan did, is talk to your family and let them know what your wishes are".

After seeing images of the crash that has since claimed the lives of 16 players and staff of the Humboldt Broncos, education assistants Nikki Arsneault and Tamara Fisher came up with the idea of the ribbons.

Of the 29 people on the bus, 16 died, including Bieber, and 13 were injured.

"They are with you on every road trip, and they are there for you through your good times and bad, so I think it's wonderful what they're doing here for her", she said.

Like Hamilton, Valley Wildcats general manager Nick Greenough has spent a lot of time reflecting on the countless hours he's logged on a bus as both a former high-level hockey player and coach.

"On Thursday, April 12, 2018, we will wear our jerseys to show our support and send our love".

She was "extremely proud to be part of the Broncos family", her family added.

And the fact that she also had to serve as the team's equipment manager along with her duties as athletic therapist did not faze her one bit. Health officials are also encouraging people to seek out informal supports if they are in need, through their church or spiritual providers, family, friends and community.

New Westminster will pay tribute to the Humboldt Broncos at a community event Thursday evening (tonight).
