MISE À DAY

In the aftermath of Sunday night's spate of stabbings in Saskatchewan, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered his support for the victims of the “shocking and heartbreaking” attacks.

“This type of violence, like any type of violence, has no place in our country. We continue to monitor the situation closely and advise everyone to follow the updates provided by local authorities because the priority is of course to ensure the safety of people, “said Mr. Trudeau during a press briefing.

The latter, who met with leaders of the James Smith Cree Nation as well as the Premier of Saskatchewan, affirmed that his government would continue to provide the necessary resources , not only for the investigation, but also for “the healing and the work that we have to do together in the months and years to come”.

Justin Trudeau took advantage of this speech to ask those who have information allowing them to find the perpetrators of these crimes to contact 911.

The federal flags having been lowered to half-mast in support of the victims and their loved ones, the Prime Minister Trudeau also stressed that those affected by this tragedy could go to hopeforhealth.ca for information to get support.
