Canadians across the country are planning to trade their usual weekday outfits for sports jerseys Today, to honour every one of those affected in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash tragedy.
A group of hockey parents from Langley, B.C. started the #JerseysforHumboldt plan over the weekend to show the victims’ families that they are thinking of them.
Though they never meant for the idea to catch on worldwide, the Jersey Day idea has spread through social media.
Dozens of sports organizations, school boards and local businesses across Canada, the U.S. and even Europe are encouraging their members and students to wear jerseys or green and gold colours today.
CP encourages employees to wear a hockey jersey, if safe to do so, and join an international movement on Thursday, April 12, 2018 to show your support for Humboldt and the Broncos. #JerseysForHumbolt pic.twitter.com/vy5J0UMl2H
