City Staff Plans To Support Humboldt Broncos

The City of Windsor is thinking about the Humboldt Broncos.

Prior to Monday night's council meeting, a moment of silence was held for the victims and survivors.

Mayor Drew Dilkens says the tragedy has impacted all Canadians.

"Certainly as a parent you can recognize the pain that many families are feeling in our country and certainly in that particular community," says Dilkens.  "It was appropriate for our council to take time, have a moment of silence and recognize that tragedy and the families that are affected."

Dilkens adds says city staff will also wear jerseys on Thursday, raising funds to help players and their families cope with expenses through the Go Fund Me page.

He hopes others in the community will also wear jerseys.

"The more people that can become apart of that and help with the healing and raise some money for the victims of that tragedy I think the better," says Dilkens.

15 people were killed Friday when a bus carrying the Broncos hockey team was involved in a crash with a transport truck.

The RCMP continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding Friday's crash.
