It was only a week ago that we covered the horrific crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

Many people also added headsets, statistics sheets and other items to recognize the team broadcaster, the volunteer statistician and the bus driver lost in the crash.

The outpouring of support has seen millions raised for the families of those involved in the tragedy.

Then her next tweet got cryptic and downright very bad as she complained that people were only donating so much because all of the victims involved were White males.

Michelle Moison, wearing a Montreal Canadiens jersey, dropped some money in the bottle as the mother of three children who play travel hockey.

"Canadians regularly show outpourings of support for us in our time of need".

"And we know exactly what that feeling would have felt like".

Stagg says you just don't know what can happen.

The Toronto rapper wore a No. 14 white, green and gold Humboldt Broncos jersey to the Raptors' opening playoff game against the visiting Washington Wizards at the Air Canada Centre. Demarais works at Windsor Regional Hospital Met Campus and her ribbons were an instant hit. The school was taking part in Jersey Day, which is a grassroots event taking place in schools and workplaces across Canada to commemorate the 16 Humboldt Broncos players and other people who died in a horrific crash with a semi-trailer last Friday.

"Very tight-knit community, especially the youth hockey in the area", says Chris Beno, President, De Pere Area Youth Hockey.
