So Teddy... you mean, like...

...every time there's an outbreak of mass murder?

• La Loche, SK • “The community usually pulls together really strong in times like this,” said Clearwater River Dene Nation Chief Teddy Clark on Friday.
Thanks for the clarification.

Note: CBC Radio is reporting this as an incident at a remote community.

Not a single use of the word "aboriginal." Likewise CBC news website is using an obviously heavily edited "rainbows & unicorn farts" comment thread to steer the conversation...
Hi there. This is CBC Forum, our new attempt to encourage a different kind of conversation on our website.

Yes Haydn... we see that. From what I can see... you're also obviously discouraging any commentary that doesn't heed the party line...
Such a beautiful place with beautiful people...you don't deserve this sadness

Such beautiful shining stars taken from us too soon. Canada mourns with you, Laloche.

Schools need to address the issue of bullying.

So sad...It can happen anywhere...But why?

Well, Boardwalk... I'm not so sure this happens anywhere... or that it's some sort of mystery...
"Sapers pointed to statistics that show the total number of people incarcerated in federal institutions went down by 12 per cent between 1996 and 2004. But the number of native inmates increased 21 per cent in the same period."

"The figures were even more dramatic for native women, whose numbers rose by a startling 74 per cent."
The Globe & Mail has followed suit... it's a geographical, rather than a cultural issue...shitkicker cowboysThose damn shitkicker cowboy Saskatooners... wait a minute...

and if it's too much trouble to find someone to kill, you can just off yourself...

"The area, which includes La Loche, Buffalo Narrows, Ile a la Crosse and other communities in the province’s northwest, averaged 43.4 suicide deaths per 100,000 people between 2008 and 2012. That’s more than triple the average annual provincial rate of 12.7..."

yeah, yeah, i know... let's blame stephen harper.

This area of Saskabush has the highest addiction rates and highest suicide rate in western Canada = sad, truly sad but I think that plays into this,

Other than the human tragedy in this there is only :
A) an unrestricted manually operated unrestricted scatter gun widely available and used for bird game, misused as a murder weapon
B) a group of people who asked for exemption from the firearms licencing regime because they are entitled to hunt from a young age
C)A party which granted a 2 tiered gun control regime exempting aboriginals from access restrictions the rest of us have.
D) an aboriginal community with high levels of self destructive behaviors in their youth who the selfie party seem to have ignored - until the shots went off

You can drive around Laloche using Street View on Google Earth. Not really my idea of a beautiful place. I doubt bullying had much to do with it.

no education, no jobs, no hope.

it doesn't matter how much unaudited money you hand over to the chiefs and their immediate circle... the rest of the aboriginals are doomed to live lives of criminality & addiction.

you cannot preserve every little bush settlement in remote parts of canada... and the people apparently cannot survive without government intervention.

lose-lose.

If you look at the map this community is right across the border from Ft. Mac - lotsa grunt work at big bucks pay and just a drive away -they could work their 2 week shifts and save the cost of Ft, Mac by commuting

No huh?

"bill elder says... this community is right across the border from Ft. Mac"

but if the government is willing to pay you to sit on your duff and not work... what's the incentive here?

and all that commuting is gonna cut into "getting wasted" with your bros time.
