These pumpkins, paying tribute to the Humbolt Broncos hockey team and Abbotsford Police Const. John Davidson, were carved by Rick Chong of Abbotsford.

Abbotsford resident Rick Chong has created a series of intricately carved pumpkins that include tributes to some Canadian tragedies.

Chong’s 30-pumpkin display at 3087 Immel St. features a tribute to Abbotsford Police officer Const. John Davidson, who was fatally shot in the line of duty on Nov. 6, 2017, at the age of 53.

It also includes a tribute to the Humboldt Broncos hockey team from Saskatchewan, whose bus was involved in a collision with a semi-truck in April, resulting in the deaths of 16 people and injuries to 13 others.

The Abbotsford Police Department gave a shout-out to Chong today on its Twitter and Facebook accounts.
