The Sketch That’s Captured A Nation

An Ottawa-raised woman who drew a pencil sketch of local teen Jonathan Pitre meeting  members of the Humboldt Broncos players in a hockey rink in heaven says she’s surprised at the impact her drawing is having. Kerry MacGregor, who now lives in France, says she’s overwhelmed by the huge social media response to her sketch, which has garnered thousands of shares and retweets. Pitre, who worked tirelessly to raise awareness about EB, his rare and painful skin condition, passed away last week. His death was announced Friday morning, just hours before the deadly crash of the hockey team’s bus in Saskatchewan.  (Ottawa Citizen, local files)
