On the fourth anniversary of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy, those here at home and around the world pause to remember and honour the 2017-2018 Humboldt Broncos, their families, and all those impacted by the tragedy on April 6, 2018. Residents are reminded of the following events.
The City of Humboldt, in collaboration with representatives of the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos Families, has prepared a hybrid tribute of videos and online content to honour the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos and all those impacted. The videos can be viewed on the City of Humboldt’s Facebook page.
The Elgar Petersen Arena will be open to the public to come and go as they wish to pay their respects and reflect from 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm. During this time, a compilation of videos from the past three services and some newly created videos will be played on the jumbotron for those who choose to attend.
At around 4:50 pm, the approximate time that the tragedy occurred, the bells at St. Augustine Church will be tolled twenty-nine times. Mayor Behiel has proclaimed Wednesday, April 6th, 2022, as “2017-18 Humboldt Broncos Day” in the city of Humboldt and encourages all citizens to observe a moment of silence at approximately 4:50 pm, no matter where they may be.
The city, province, country and the world pauses to remember the 2017-2018 Humboldt Broncos.
