Suspect ‘opened fire in the building’: At least five dead, one person in custody, in La Loche school shooting

At least five people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a daytime shooting at the community school in La Loche, a northern community approximately six hours north of Saskatoon.

“The community usually pulls together really strong in times like this. Right now, La Loche is devastated,” said Clearwater River Dene Nation Chief Teddy Clark on Friday.

    And here come the crocodile tears from PM Pony and his media sycophants. The only thing more disgusting than the political establishment getting their drama on is the killings themselves.

    I fully expect we’ll be subjected to round the clock in-depth coverage of ‘In Response to the La Loche Shooting’ Theater, with the maybe an occasional commercial break to report on the actual shooting itself.

      Can we expect CAIR to weigh in on this one?

      • Exile1981

        it’s a reservation. Its more likely a drug fuelled shooting.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Well, we know that but a lot of other people don’t.

          • Exile1981

            Reservation with the highest suicide rate at 4 times national average.

            Police say the suspect shot someone at a home shortly before heading to the school. Also that shooter was a youth.

            according to the cbc it is residue from the residential schools and colonization basically its is all to be laid at YTs door.

            CBC has maybe five percent of prime time viewers.
            How much of that is Coronation Street?

          • Brian Jones

            4.75%.

            The other 0.25% are the folks trying to figure out where the hockey is.

            It is always whiteys fault, and global warming, and George Bush, and Stephen Harper’s.

            I used to know a guy who worked as a geologist up near
            Lac La Loche about 35 years ago, right after he graduated from university. He was based in La Loche. He said it was very common to see the local “chief” screwing his wife on the front steps of the city hall (a very small building) around noon. Real classy people; but almost all were “native”, or in today’s PC, first nations.

            But the CBC doesn’t mind islam colonizing Canada as shown in the little mosque on the prairie that painted chistians as ignorant bigot while it was the muslims that were enlightened to bring islam to he natives .

          • ntt1

            Read up on the frankfurt school this is exactly what they strove for oppressors must be nuetralized and marginalized groups brought to the forefront.

        CAIR will make up an other Pepper Spray hoax with no witnesses or victims .

    • Has Justin been able to find a nearby Mosque?

      • Gary

        He’ll find one that he can tell to stage a bogus vandalism to call 9-1-1 and make it look real so he go their and condemn the non-crime.

      • BillyHW

        Why do you begrudge a man who wants to pray amongst fellow believers in these times of great tragedy?

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Because he’s a fucking asshole.

  • canminuteman

    They will be on this to bring in more gun control, even though natives are pretty much exempt from the current laws.

  • Gary

    Justin gave a very hollow and scripted response to hijack the pain and feeling by the relatives .
    He’s quick to condemn even an Alleged act of islamophobia even if it was fabricated by the mosque imam or a fellow muslim wanting to play the victim.
    The fact that Justin is slow to condemn this hate-crime just as he was slow to condemn the Calgary bar hate-crime by 2 MUSLIM’S that shot it up…. pretty well hints at the slaughter as being by a muslim , or it’s inferred where he wants to wait and get approval to condemn it once it is a non-muslim .
    The morons elected an idiot that coddles the stupid .

    • andycanuck

      He also got the number of dead wrong. I guess the RCMP Commissioner should have made the announcement himself after he got all of the information rather than telling Justin so he could make the “grave” announcement at Davos.

    Wow, I can’t believe Canada had a school shooting, and so far North, by Saskatoon? What??

  • Petrilia

    Reserve….reservation is american. Remember PMHarper trying to make their leaders accountable just like cities and towns are. I imagineTrudeau will appoint another army of bureaucrats like his daddy did with Chretien back in the 70s. Put a match to some more taxpayer money.

    • ontario john

      Trudeau has cancelled the rule that indians have to account for the money they spend from the taxpayers. He is now calling off audits of charities as well. This is good news for indians wanting more money. They are already responding to this tragedy by calling for more discussion “Nation to Nation” about violence on reserves. Expect another call for more inquiries and of course more money.

    can you say “gun registry” ?

  • Clear Thinker

    That part of Canada has a wonderful history, the methys portage, the northwest trading company next to the Hudson Bay fur traders, the great waters of the area. This could be the true heart of the history of Canada. Now a teacher, dead, performing her duties as God gave her the clarity to do so, and some guy, now in jail, who will get 6 months at ping pong camp for 4 murders, just about right in this country I guess.

    • Clausewitz

      Don’t forget the native healing circles instead of jail time.

  • xavier

    Wait you can bet that PM My little pony will
    A) severely restrict all weapons
    B) try to bring back the gun registry through a back door
    C) find some way to ponticste santimonioudly about how pepple don’t need guns yada yada yada

      Maybe someone should kick him outdoors in Churchill MB for a couple of days to see if he really thinks guns are never needed. This could help cure our biggest problem we as Canadians endure.
