Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says this is an especially difficult day for a lot of people as we mark three years since the terrible bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.

Trudeau says we remember 16 people who were taken much too soon.

A virtual tribute is planned for today to mark the third anniversary of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

Sixteen people died and 13 were injured when a semi-trailer ran a stop sign and into the path of the junior hockey team's bus near Tisdale, Sask., on April 6, 2018.

The service from St. Augustine Catholic Church is to be livestreamed on the city of Humboldt's Facebook page.

It's to involve lighted candles and tolling church bells, followed by a moment of silence at 4:50 p.m., about the time the crash occurred.

The mayor has deemed today ``2017-18 Humboldt Broncos Day'' and would like to see that continued every April 6.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says in a statement that it's a solemn anniversary to remember "those taken from us far too soon."
