Humboldt bus crash reminds us how fast private grief becomes public property

On April 6, just north of Tisdale, Sask., at the junction of Hwys 35 and 335, a westbound truck slammed into a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team. The collision claimed the lives of 16 team members and injured 13 others. As expected, this disaster became national news, moving Canadians to express condolences and show commiseration through memorials and contributions to the Humboldt Broncos GoFundMe webpage. Given the magnitude of the calamity, this story was expected to stay newsworthy for a few days but then fade away. However, the Humboldt Broncos crash became public property, as Canadians from all over decided that they were also emotionally invested in this loss of life.
