Canada seeks suspects in 10 stabbings, 15 injured
At the start of a knife attack on Sunday that left 10 dead and at least 15 injured, largely in a sparsely populated indigenous village, Canadian police searched for two suspects.
The stabbings at 13 different crime scenes were among the deadliest mass murders in Canadian history and are sure to have an impact on the entire country, which is unaccustomed to the type of large-scale violence scale more commonly seen in the United States.
Today’s horrific attacks have shocked and devastated me,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. As Canadians, we mourn with the people of Saskatchewan and all those affected by this horrific violence.
Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30, were identified as the two suspects by police, who also provided pictures and descriptions of them, but no other information regarding their whereabouts or the victims.
Native American elders made a statement suggesting the attacks may have been drug-motivated.
According to the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, it is the damage that occurs when dangerous illegal narcotics enter our communities. The association speaks on behalf of 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan.
According to the woman’s former partner and local media, a mother of two was among the 10 dead.
Speaking to the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, Michael Brett Burns said: ‘It’s disgusting how prison, drugs and alcohol can destroy so many lives.
