KENT COVINGTON, HOST: Ten days ago, tragedy struck in Saskatchewan, Canada. That’s when the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus collided with a semi, killing 16 people.
Kevin Garinger— president of the young men’s amateur team— described the loss.
GARINGER: This is certainly a provincial, a national and even a global traumatic event.
The tragedy has captured the hearts of hockey-obsessed Canada. A GoFundMe page set up to help victims’ families has raised a whopping $12 million.
The response has been so overwhelming that the team will take down the page tonight. It’s assembling a committee to decide how to use the money.
Garinger said— “Our families and our entire organization has been blessed to feel this love from people from around the globe.”
It’s The World and Everything in It.
