The Canadian Forces say that this year they are focused on showing tribute to those affected by the Humboldt tragedy.

The CF-18 Hornet joined a Sea King helicopter from North Saanich’s 443 Helicopter Squadron, and many more personnel from every branch of the military in the 120th Island Farms Victoria Day.

“We’ve all sort of felt that personal connection in different ways to the tragedy,” says Capt. (Navy) Jason Boyd, CFB Esquimalt Base Commander, “I myself am from Saskatchewan. I’ve travelled those roads playing hockey and I was a listed member of the Humboldt Broncos at one time so this is a great opportunity for us to show our support to them.”
