Absolute Towers change lights to green and yellow to honour Humboldt tragedy
As tribute to the victims of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy, Mississauga’s Absolute Towers change the lights at the top of the building to match the green and yellow of the Broncos up until Tuesday, April 10.
The lights on the City Centre condo, also known as the Marilyn Monroe towers, were also green and yellow on Monday, April 9 to honour the Saskatchewan Jr. A hockey club.
“Tonight to show our support to those affected by the Humboldt Broncos tragedy our lights have been changed to Green and Yellow #Broncostrong,” Absolute World said in a Facebook post.
On Friday, April 6, the Broncos’ team bus collided with a semi-trailer north of Tisdale, Sask. on its way to a playoff game. The accident claimed 15 lives while 14 people on the bus were injured.
On Monday, the Port Credit lighthouse were also lit green and yellow to pay tribute. The same can be said for the Civic Centre clock tower on the day of the crash.
Also in Peel, flags at all Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board schools and facilities were lowered to half mast up until Tuesday.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the players and families affected by the tragedy. As of Wednesday morning, April 11, more than $8.1 million has been raised.
