Canadian police: Fatalities after bus crash involving junior hockey league team

In the early hours of Saturday, Royal Canadian Mounted Police inspector Ted Munro said rescue efforts were ongoing and said they had set up an information and support centre for families at the Nipawin Apostolic Church.

Steven Wilson, a co-worker in Weyburn, Sask., said it was Bieber's first season announcing for the team.

"In most cases they become like one of your children or grandchildren", said Gail Chilman, a billeting co-ordinator with the Estevan Bruins, a team in the same league as the Broncos.

"There's connections everywhere it seems, it's a tight-knit family in hockey", said Chilman, who said she also knew the assistant coach of the team who was involved in the crash.

Michelle Straschnitzki, who lives in Airdrie, said her 18-year old son Ryan had been taken to hospital in Saskatoon.

"They're just young gentlemen and you're still trying to push them in the right direction in their lives and try and influence some of their habits and what happens later on in their lives", said Chilman.

Herold, who would have turned 17 on Thursday, played for the Regina Pat Canadians hockey team until just weeks ago, but was sent to join the Broncos for their playoff round when the Pat Canadians' season wrapped up, said John Smith, the Pat Canadians' manager.

"Some of them come in and fit in really quickly", said Chilman.

The mayor said he talked on the phone with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who passed along condolences from world leaders. "We know that the coroner and their office need to do their work and let families know".

"While we try and move forward as an organization and community, we will never forget April 6, 2018, and we will never forget the members of our Broncos family who were taken from us and who were injured".

"People are in such shock".

Turnout shortly before the deadline was 68.1 percent, nine points higher than at the same time in the 2014 parliamentary election. The one thing opposition parties do agree on is the need to reverse many of Orban's policies, which they call anti-democratic.

"I can't imagine being the parent or the wife or the kids at home going through something like this", Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said at a press conference. All these young men and boys.

"We're all hurting", said hockey arena cook Diane Sawatzky.

"This is, I would think, one of the darkest days in the history of Saskatchewan, especially because hockey is so ingrained in how we grow up here", he said.

Air ambulances were dispatched to the scene to transport the injured to hospital.

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this bad tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond", Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted.

Don Cherry spoke briefly about the crash on his Coach's Corner segment before introducing a montage of photos of every member of the Broncos team.

"Sending all my thoughts and prayers to those impacted with the @HumboltBroncos bus crash".

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said he found the news "difficult to comprehend".

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "Just spoke to @JustinTrudeau to pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the bad Humboldt Team tragedy".

"From a grieving province, thank you to every one of the first responders and medical professionals for your courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

Former National Hockey League (NHL) player Sheldon Kennedy tweeted that he would be in Humboldt on Sunday evening to support players and families, along with former players Bob Wilkie and Peter Soberlak. It's open to North American-born players from the ages of 16 to 20.
