CBC News will have special coverage of the public vigil for the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team, live from the Humboldt, Sask., arena beginning Sunday at 9 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CST).

The community of Humboldt will come together with mourners from all over the country — including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe — at a ceremony held at the Elgar Petersen Arena where the Broncos play.

The deadly crash of the junior hockey team's bus with a transport truck on Friday has claimed the lives of 15 members of the Broncos community.

The vigil will start with opening remarks from Humboldt's mayor Rob Muench.

Broncos team president Kevin Garinger will also speak. In addition to acting as president of the team, Garinger and his family was billeting Broncos forward Conner Lukan, who died in the crash.

An "interministerial team" from among some of the 11 places of worship in town has also planned a ceremony and music.

Arena doors open to the community at 6 p.m. The town is providing overflow space at the curling rink, high school and public school, and people from out of town are welcomed at those locations. 

Flags are seen at half-mast outside City Hall in Humboldt, Sask., on Sunday. The community plans a vigil in honour of those who lost their lives. (Jonathan Hayward/Canadian Press)
