Sixteen people have died and another 13 were injured, some severely, when the Humboldt Broncos’ bus collided with the semi north of Tisdale around 5 p.m. on April 6. The truck driver was uninjured.

Social media channels have been flooded with messages of support for the victims and the city of about 5,900 people east of Saskatoon.

However, according to RCMP spokesman Cpl. Rob King, the force has not identified any specific posts that could lead to a formal response. The RCMP monitors social media channels and relies on others to flag troubling messages, he added.

“We’ll investigate any complaint of (online) behaviour. We would encourage anyone who sees concerning information online to contact their local detachment to report it,” King said.

“We know that our province will continue to come together as we grieve for those lost and support those that are recovering,” provincial government spokesman Jim Billington wrote in a prepared statement.

“As such, the Government of Saskatchewan would urge everyone to continue to react in a way that honours the lives of those lost in this tragedy and to remember our personal responsibility for our comments, including those on social media.”

The province has called for calm online at least twice previously — after Colten Boushie was shot near Biggar in August 2016, and during Gerald Stanley’s murder trial in connection with Boushie’s death. Stanley was acquitted in February.
