This is an awesome way to represent Canada by our politicians.
Statement by Andrew Scheer:
Today in the House of Commons we honoured the victims of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. I was honoured to speak on behalf of Canada’s Conservatives.
To the community of Humboldt, and to the towns across Canada from which the victims came to play the game they loved, we say:
We grieve with you, and we will remember with you.
No matter where you live, no matter how quiet the nights seem, no matter how small the town feels – we are all your neighbours now.
To those still recovering in hospital – we are thinking of you, and sending you our prayers for strength for the challenges that lay ahead.
The entire country will be there to help support the victims and their families, to keep the game going, and to win the next one for the Broncos.
For you, we’ll keep the stands full. We’ll keep the rink lights on.
And we will keep the sticks by the door.
