Special service remembers Humboldt Broncos on third anniversary of crash

CKTB - Humboldt Broncos

It will be an emotional day for many as the nation marks the third anniversary of the horrific Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

A virtual tribute will take place at St. Augustine Catholic Church today to honour the 16 lives lost and the 13 people who were injured when a semi-truck collided with the team's bus in Saskatchewan.

The service featuring a moment of silence at 4:50 p.m. will be livestreamed on the city of Humboldt's Facebook page.

Yesterday officials revealed plans for a $25 million centre to honour the victims of the crash.

The Broncos Tribute Centre and a Roadside Memorial would include a gallery, ice surface, and a physiotherapy area.
