Sask. funeral homes gathering messages of support for Humboldt crash victims - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
The crash killed 15 people in the bus and injured 14 others.
Arbor Memorial’s locations in Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon are collecting messages of condolence for the victims, which will be printed into 30 books and given to the team and the 29 victims’ families.
“You have people who, they've lost the joy,” Jeff Weafer, managing director for Arbor Memorial, told CTV Saskatoon. “We felt that one way we could try and reach out and support the people in our communities was by giving them an opportunity to express their grief.”
So far, the funeral homes have received written and digital messages from as far away as Nova Scotia and as nearby as their own staff.
“We have a colleague who had a relative on that bus, so it is very personal,” Weafer said.
The funeral homes will collect messages until April 20.With a report from CTV Saskatoon’s Laura WoodwardLet's block ads! (Why?)...

She was handed a 30-day sentence on Thursday for assaulting a staff member while on remand at the Paul Dojack Youth Centre in Regina.The murder
In July of last year the teen escaped while serving an open-custody sentence at Kilburn Hall in Saskatoon and roamed the streets in Saskatoon looking for a place to say. She told a woman she escaped from a group home in Prince Albert. The stranger gave her food, clothing and tried to take her to EGADZ, a youth centre, but it was closed, according to an agreed statement of facts.
The woman eventually took the teen a home in the 200 block of Waterloo Crescent, where Nikosis and his family lived. The teen had never met anyone in the home prior but they agreed to let her stay there.
Last week court watched a video which showed the teen explaining to police in great detail, how she choked, punched, kicked and stabbed Nikosis with a metal nail.
I was holding that baby, rocking him like a mom,” she said in the video. She was in the room for about five minutes before she beat him. “I just started choking him and punching his head in.”
The teen said she took all her anger out on the baby.
“I was sick and tired of life,” she said. “That’s why I hurt that baby and I killed it.”
Lawyers in the case are scheduled to present their closing arguments in the adult sentencing hearing Friday.Angelina Irinici is in court for the hearing:

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and TimesThursday, April 12, 2018
Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it was really that they were kids; they’re young kids,” said the mayor.“I think that’s what hits hard at most people.”(With files from Jonathon Brodie and Canadian Press) Let's block ads!
