For Tobin's family, Wilby said, "this is not easy news for them to digest".

"This is something that is so traumatic; I think everybody's going to take more time than we can ever imagine to come to terms with everything", she said.

"A lot of these boys looked alike. They had very similar builds and all very similar ages".

"I'm from a small town and know how everyone bands together in the wake of tragedies like this. All I could do is offer our sincerest apologies". "Our condolences go out to the family of Parker Tobin".

"And the dad saying, 'When Parker was a child he had chicken pox, and there was this one scar on his forehead, and thankfully this seven-inch gash will make that immaterial'".

Trudeau visited survivors of the crash in a Saskatoon hospital earlier in the day.

Rob Muench; Mayor of Humboldt : "This, tonight, is one of the steps that we have to go through in the healing process of our community".

"It's hard to comprehend that", he said.

Kevin Garinger is not only the president of the Humboldt Broncos hockey club, but he is also director of education for the Horizon School Division and says some of the junior hockey players were students.

"There is no training that would help a human being to prepare themselves for a tragedy of this nature, and it's why you have to focus on that debriefing and those conversations and crisis trauma and social supports after the event occurs", Livingstone said, before bringing up the 1986 crash in which four Swift Current Broncos died. "It's not about understanding anything". The incident has sparked tributes in the National Hockey League and a wave of financial support.

Wilby said the Tobin and Labelle families were notified of the error Sunday night - the same night thousands of family members, friends and fans attended a solemn prayer vigil in the team's home rink.

It is Pastor Sean Brandow's job to try to ease the pain of Humboldt's 6,000 residents. "We know better today", Kennedy said.

"There has to be healing", Brandow said. He described hearing the cries and holding the hand of a lifeless body.

MacLean said Labelle, "in addition to these horrific cuts, he had a vertebrate broken, he had a rib broken, he had a hip broken, he had a lacerated liver". "All I saw was darkness and hurt and anguish and fear and confusion".

The truck driver was not injured in the collision, and was released from police custody.

Representatives from Cambridge Minor Hockey Association turned out at the city's civic square for the lighting of the city sign, lighting 15 candles, one for each of the crash victims. Boxes of Kleenex were passed down rows.

Many in Ladysmith are also planning to wear their sports jerseys on Thursday after B.C. hockey moms came up with the campaign to show solidarity for Humboldt. Families who provide homes for players are a large part of junior hockey in Canada, with players spending years with host families.

Teena Monteleone, a Prince Albert, Sask. -based radio host, identified herself as having billeted Adam Herold, one of the Broncos to die in the crash. During the 2017-2018 season, he won nine out of 14 games before he was traded to the Humboldt Broncos.
