Jersey Day History
Jersey Day seeks to remember the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. On April 6th 2018, a semi-trailer truck failed to heed a stop sign. This failure resulted in the tragic crash that would leave 16 dead and 13 injured.
Jersey Day was established 6 days later on April 12th, 2018 by Toronto Mayor John Tory. People across Canada were encouraged to wear sports jerseys to remember those who lost their lives. Jersey Day is observed annually on April 12th.
