HUMBOLDT TRAGEDY HITS HOME

April 11, 2018 –  “This world may bring deep darkness, but we are the bearers of light. We’ll join our flames together, and shine in the blackest of nights.” – John Mark Green

The April 6 Humboldt tragedy has brought much grief to our nation, bringing people together in sorrow and in support. As a self-proclaimed hockey community, for the City of Timmins, this hits very close to home.

The City’s Mayor, Council and staff are touched by all the residents who lovingly placed their hockey sticks out and left their lights on in honour of those directly affected by this devastating event, and invite residents to join together in another show of sympathy tomorrow, Thursday, April 12.

The flags at City Hall will be lowered to half-mast in recognition of this incredible loss felt by the Humboldt Broncos, their families, friends and community. Timmins employees and residents are also being encouraged to join the Jersey Day movement, first proposed in Vancouver and quickly spreading across the country. The City will also be accepting donations through the Tax Counter at City Hall.
