Humboldt Broncos trainer Dayna Brons, 24, died of her injuries on April 11 after the April 6 crash near Tisdale.

The collision, involving a truck, killed 15 people linked to the junior hockey team: Parker Tobin, 18 (he was initially misidentified as Xavier Labelle, who is still alive); Brody Hinz, 18; Darcy Haugan, 42; Logan Schatz, 20; Adam Herold, 16; Jaxon Joseph, 20; Mark Cross, 27; Tyler Bieber, 29; Stephen Wack, 21; Logan Hunter, 18; Conner Lukan, 21; Glen Doerksen, 59; Evan Thomas, 18; Jacob Leicht, 19; and Logan Boulet, 21.

Victims include players, coaches, event staff, and the bus driver, who were heading to a playoff game in Nipawin.

Bieber’s funeral is the first, taking place April 12. He was an announcer.

Thirteen others are injured.

#JerseysforHumboldt was started by a group of hockey parents.

The City of Mississauga has lowered flags to half-mast to show support for the junior hockey team.

The Port Credit lighthouse was recently lit up in green.

Thousands of Canadians are rallying around the hockey community, with many residents, small businesses, and corporate giants leaving hockey sticks outside of their doors.
