Book of Condolences

The City of St. Albert would like to provide residents with the opportunity to express their condolences to those most directly impacted by this terrible accident – the families of the players involved.

From 12 p.m. on April 10 until 9 p.m. on April 16, residents will be able to add personal messages of grief, compassion and support in books of condolence. The books will be in the lobby of St. Albert Place, located at 5 St. Anne Street in St. Albert.

Although words are not adequate to express the depth of sorrow felt by our community, our messages of support will let the families know we share their grief, value the contributions their sons made to our community, and will remember them always.

An account has been set up in trust to the three families at the St. Albert  ATB by Walmart. The money will be split three ways between the three local families.

Donations can be dropped off at the branch or you can make a direct deposit to the account number 831-00240872479. e-transfers can be sent to with the password broncos.
