Support has been flowing in from all over Vancouver Island as Canadians honour the victims and survivors of the recent tragedy that struck the Humboldt Broncos.

The town, province, and the entire nation has been grieving for the Saskatchewan-based junior hockey team and their family members after an accident involving their team bus and a semi-truck left 16 people dead and 13 injured.

The Broncos were on their way to Nipawin for a playoff game.

The response from around the country has been overwhelming, with several movements taking place social media.

Canadians have left their hockey sticks out for in a display of support since Sunday, and incredibly, a GoFundMe campaign that began last Friday has already amassed $9.8-million.

Today, Victorians have joined the nation donning their jerseys for ‘National Jersey Day’, a movement started by a group of hockey moms in B.C., urging people to show their support for the small Saskatchewan town.

Check out the inspiring amount of support our city is showing!
