The families of the victims in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are furious with a Canadian author who wrote a book about the tragedy and people involved in the crash.

Barry Heath is the author of Humble Beginnings of the Humboldt Broncos and the 2017-2018 Team. The book was published back in September and was taken down for the time being. Last weekend the book was spotted in Indigo, Chapters, and many other stores.

Despite the families telling the author he could not publish the book, Heath released the book anyway. 

"It was just too soon, especially for a book that is about the whole situation, as a collective group of stories because a lot of people feel that there are so many stories that aren't finished yet and it's just sensitive and raw for the people that were closely attached to this still," said the Wife of Darcy Haugan, Christina Haugan.

The book is being taken off shelves all over the province as people continue to show their support for those involved in the Bus Crash. We attempted to contact Barry Heath, but he did not respond.
