A memorial continues to grow outside the scene of the Toronto van attack that claimed the lives of 10 people and injured 14 others.

Hundreds of Toronto sports fans will pack Maple Leaf Square outside Air Canada Centre tonight to cheer not one, but THREE of their pro teams in action!

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League drew to a close last night when the Nipawin Hawks won the league title less than three weeks after the deadly bus crash involving the league’s Humboldt Broncos. Nipawin defeated Estevan 2-1 in Game 7 to win the Canalta Cup while wearing green helmets to honour the Broncos. Both teams wore Humboldt Broncos ribbons on their jerseys. The Broncos were on their way to Nipawin, Sask., for a playoff game on April 6 when their bus collided with a truck. Sixteen people died in the crash.
