Trying to find healing in Humboldt
Humboldt is taking the first steps in the long healing process.
Thousands attended a vigil in the grieving Saskatchewan community of six-thousand to remember the victims of Friday's devastating crash, where 15 members of the Broncos junior hockey club were killed when their team bus was T-boned by a tractor-trailer at an intersection on a rural highway north of Tisdale.
14 others on the bus were injured -- one of whom, Nick Shumlanski -- was released from hospital Sunday and attended the vigil wearing his team jersey.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the families and those affected by the tragedy and so it has raised 4.6-million dollars.

Team president Kevin Garinger calls that figure staggering, and says they will ensure the money goes to the 14 survivors and the families of the dead.
The mother of one of the Bathurst Phantoms basketball team says Friday's crash brought up an ``overwhelming flood of painful memories.''
Isabelle Hains' son Daniel was one of eight people killed in van crash just over 10 years ago.
Hains says she wants those affected by the crash in Saskatchewan to know they're not alone.
Former Bathurst Phantoms captain also offered sympathies.
Jordan Frenette wasn't in the van when his teammates were killed because he was sick that day.
He hopes the people affected by the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are able to find healing through their communities.
