Metro Vancouver has its jerseys out for Humboldt


From school kids to firefighters, thousands of people across Metro Vancouver are donning hockey jerseys today in a show of support for the victims of the Humboldt bus accident.

Sixteen people died after a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi-trailer on rural Saskatchewan road Friday. Thirteen others were injured, some of them critically.

The #jerseysforhumboldt campaign was started by Langley hockey mom Jennifer Pinch who wanted the people of Humboldt to know that they not alone and there is a country behind them.

In a Facebook post, Pinch urged people from around the world to post photos of themselves wearing a hockey jersey with the jerseysforhumboldt hashtag.
