The Ottawa Connection Tribute

 

The artist behind this tribute to Jonathan Pitre, and the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, a writer who lives in France is Ottawa born. Kerry MacGregor had followed Jonathan’s journey closely, and the bus crash reminded her of a crash from 1999 when five teens from Kanata, friends of her brother died as a result of the accident on Highway 7.

 

 

“Even though I’m far away maybe that’s what sort of drew my emotions that way,” said MacGregor, who responded with a drawing, which has spread across social media.  She says the rink seemed like the best place these young men should be.   She says when she finished the drawing she had tears.
