Thinking of Humboldt
The tragedy of the Humboldt Broncos has been felt across Canada, including here in our close-knit community of St. Albert. Several of the young men on the team grew up here, played hockey in our rinks and enriched the lives of all who had the privilege to know them.
The City of St. Albert would like to provide residents with the opportunity to express their condolences to those most directly impacted by this terrible accident – the families of the players involved.
From 12 p.m. on April 10 until 9 p.m. on April 16, residents will be able to add personal messages of grief, compassion and support in books of condolence. The books will be in the lobby of St. Albert Place, located at 5 St. Anne Street in St. Albert.
In addition to expressing their condolences, visitors will be able to receive information on the community supports that are available.
The detailed schedule is as follows:
- Tuesday, April 10 from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Wednesday, April 11 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Thursday, April 12 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Friday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Saturday, April 14 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Sunday, April 15 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Monday, April 16 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Although words are not adequate to express the depth of sorrow felt by our community, our messages of support will let the families know we share their grief, value the contributions their sons made to our community, and will remember them always.
This web page will be regularly updated as more information becomes available.
