The Queens County Advance - - COMMUNITY -

Flags at the Re­gion of Queens Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing and Queens Place Emera Cen­tre in Liver­pool have been fly­ing at half mast in re­spect for the Hum­boldt tragedy.

Fol­low­ing a col­li­sion be­tween the team bus of the Hum­boldt Bron­cos, a Saskatchewan Ju­nior Hockey League team, and a trac­tor-trailer April 6, 15 peo­ple died, many of them young hockey play­ers.

“Flags will re­main at half mast un­til the fi­nal fu­neral has been held for those who lost their lives in the tragic ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing the Hum­boldt Bron­cos hockey team,” says the Re­gion’s web­sites.

A con­do­lence book at Queens Place Emera Cen­tre was set up in the lobby un­til April 13.

Some Queens County res­i­dents placed hockey sticks out­side their doors. The ges­ture in trib­ute to the team has been hap­pen­ing all over the place, and pho­tos on so­cial me­dia have been trending under the hash­tag #Pu­ty­our­stick­out.
