Riders to wear ‘Humboldt Strong’ on helmets this season

The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be paying a season-long tribute to the 16 people who lost their lives in the Humboldt bus tragedy.

The Riders are holding a practice and community event in Humboldt on June 3 in support of a community still coping with a devastating bus accident that took place on April 6.

The team will also hold a ‘Humboldt Strong’ home game slated for June 30 against the Montreal Alouettes in Week 3.

A bus carrying players, coaches, support staff and broadcasters with the Humboldt Broncos hockey team collided with a tractor-trailer as the team was on their way to a SJHL playoff game in northeastern Saskatchewan on April 6.

RCMP have said the truck was in an intersection at the time of the crash and the investigation is continuing.
