I can't be the only one thinking it is somewhat callous of the Humboldt Broncos not to retain Chris Beaudry?

Something terribily wrong with "some" driving big truck on SASKATCHEWAN Highways. Had the opportunity to pass a happy waving couple driving a farm tractor on the shoulder promoting dairy industry on the Trans Canada Highway last week, honked my car horn in support. Sadly they are the people who were hit by another truck. Man in hospital... rest in peace lady whoever you were. God bless. I still see your smiling faces.
