Rance Cardinal says it was a sign.

"We were in a hotel. Fifteen minutes to get to the Jets game. Turned on the TV, and it was just like a shock of pain went through my body. Then, I thought, this ain't funny no more," he said.

"I told my uncle ,'What would you do if I walked?' My uncle gave me a different look. It wasn't a look of doubt. It was a look of pride," Cardinal continued.

As a result, Rance Cardinal of Sioux Lookout's on the road. He started walking to Humboldt last week in support of the Broncos.

The distance is about 1,200 km and Cardinal's not worried about how long it'll take. Two years ago, Stan Barkman of Sachigo Lake walked to Fort McMurray in support of fire victims.

The Broncos bus was involved in a collision that has claimed the lives of 16 people and injured 13 others.
