Finding Strength in Community

 

Yesterday’s moving vigil in Humboldt – held to honour the victims of the Humboldt Bronco’s bus accident – was a powerful reminder about the strength of community and coming together in difficult times.

 

On behalf of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour’s 100,000 working members across the province, we wish to express our sympathy and condolences to the families and friends impacted by this life-altering event.

 

We owe a debt of gratitude to the first responders, medical professionals, and volunteers – many of whom are our members – for their selfless duty in responding to the accident, assisting grieving families, and ensuring a world-class recovery for those who were injured. Thank-you for everything you’ve done, and continue to do.

 

We remember the young men that died, their bus driver, their coaches, and their dedicated radio announcer:

 

 

In solidarity and strength,


Larry Hubich, SFL President

Lori Johb, SFL Secretary-Treasurer
