James Smith Cree Nation’s chief and other Saskatchewan First Nations leaders consoled a shattered community and families of victims on Thursday, the day after the man accused in a stabbing rampage was captured and then died.
Chief Wally Burns says now is the time to begin the healing process.
“We all have to come together, as a community, as Canadians, as a whole,” said Burns, who shook hands with family members of the victims before taking the podium Thursday.
“No words can emphasize the feelings that we’re going through. There are a lot of us — the families, the membership — that are seeking help.”
