You might think you know the story of how Humboldt, Sask. rebuilt its shattered community after a devastating bus crash claimed 16 lives. You don’t, really. There is not one story about this town, there are thousands of them.

Aaron Hutchins has covered the community for Maclean’s since the day tragedy struck. He takes us inside a town’s heartbreak and grief, but also inside the lives of people who shouldered the load for those who couldn’t, the young men who inspired a country and the hockey team that got back on the ice, and went on a hell of a run.

GUEST: Aaron Hutchins, Maclean’s
