More than 200 staff members – and even the children from the college daycare – joined communities across Canada in marking Jersey Day on April 12. The event was an organized effort to recognize and honour the 16 people killed and 13 injured in the crash of a coach bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team and their staff to a playoff game on April 6 in Nipawan, Sask. Lethbridge’s Logan Boulet, who had played for the Broncos for parts of three seasons, was among those killed in the crash.
Staff members generously shared extra jerseys with those who didn’t have them to prepare for this photo in Centre Core, and many, including those with ties to the Humboldt team, donned the green and gold. As a way to commemorate the day and to honour the team and their families and fans, Wider Horizons is temporarily abandoning our usual “Office Intrigue” format to showcase the best of office life – when colleagues come together to honour, grieve, celebrate and remember.
