Jersey Day for Humboldt

Jersey Day a show of solidarity across the country with those affected by Humboldt Broncos tragedy.

Smithers firefighters, police and conservation officers in front of the Smithers new arena joined Canadians across the country who donned jerseys on Jersey Day in support of the victims and survivors of the recent Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus crash in Saskatchewan.

Others in the Bulkley Valley joined in, including Bulkley Valley Christian School and Harmony Taekwon-Do.

Canadians and people in the hockey community across the world also put their sticks out to show their support, much like Glacier View RV Park as seen here.

And millions have been raised to support the victims’ families. Bulkley Valley Brewery is one business in Smithers raising funds. Every beer purchased in April is another dollar sent to the Humboldt Broncos families.
