What an absolutely horrible, heartbreaking tragedy. RIP to the victims, thoughts and prayers with the victims" families and friends. Can't imagine the grief going on there as it's likely one of those places small enough to the point where everyone knows each other.

Humboldt's population is just over 5k, but the hockey team players come from towns and cities in other Western provinces as well.

Reports say the semi ran a stop sign and t-boned the bus. Very tragic.

What can anyone say at a time like this...? I hope that idiot rots. Driving a freaking semi and so irresponsibly????? If he was driving a motorcycle or a Prius...What a selfish prick.

I'm so tired of seeing things like this happen and the driver at fault usually gets away with a slap on the wrist. They need to start charging and convicting these people of manslaughter or criminal negligence causing death. Enough is enough with this distracted driving nonsense. Start putting these people in jail

Because only criminal run stop sign by mistake.

I probably ran a couple of those in my life and i consider myself a safe and prudent driver. We're human and human make mistake. If the guy did nothing criminal, it's just a stupid and horrible accident.

What we need is robot driver and fast. 95% of accident are caused by human error.

Absolutely horrible news, I can't even imagine what the family's are going through considering how bad I feel when my kid is just really sick and can't communicate his problems with me.

Not that it means anything f to the family but I hope this was a malfunction with the semi and not a result of distracted driving or being over worked.
