Two suspects were evading arrest after a knife attack took the lives of at least ten people, and hospitalized more than a dozen others.
Saskatchewan, the Canadian province sharing a border with Montana and North Dakota, is reeling after the Labor Day Weekend killing spree brought end-of-summer festivities to a crashing stop.
First reports of violence were shortly before 6 am in a remote First-Nations community of approximately 2000 people, and the violence continued through 13 different crime scenes, with the vehicle later being seen 200 miles away in Regina.
Most news sources still appear to describe the attackers as being ‘at large’. We have the following description of the men alleged to have been behind this killing spree, as given by the RCMP officer responsible for the press release.
Let me be clear, we are still looking for the two suspects. We are asking residents across Saskatchewan and our neighbouring provinces to be vigilant. At this stage in our investigation, we believe some of the victims have been targeted by the suspects and others have been attacked randomly.
The two suspects are Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson.
Damien Sanderson is described as a 31-year-old male, 5 foot 7, 155 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Myles Sanderson is a 30-year-old male, 6 foot 1 and 240 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Their pictures are available on our social media channels and websites.
If they are listening, I would like to ask them to turn themselves in to police.
They are considered armed and dangerous. They are believed to be in a black Nissan Rogue SUV with Saskatchewan licence plate 119 MPI. At this point, we don’t know if they have changed vehicle since this morning. Their location and direction of travel are unknown. This is why we need everyone in the province to stay vigilant and report any suspicious activity by calling 911 immediately. — RCMP
It is unclear what could have motivated the attack, but there are indications that at least some of the victims would have been known to their attackers.
A leader from the community had thoughts about what could be driving the attack.
Police refused to speculate on the motive behind the attack, but Chief Bobby Cameron of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations suggested that they could be drug related.
“This is the destruction we face when harmful illegal drugs invade our communities, and we demand all authorities to take direction from the Chiefs and Councils and their membership to create safer and healthier communities for our people,” Mr Cameron said.
…Logan Stein, a local journalist, told the BBC that the region was extremely remote. He said that the attackers appeared to have gone door-to-door attacking locals. — BBC
Trudeau will do the usual hand-wringing and shed some crocodile tears over the heinous tragedy…. but let’s not foreget he’s the same guy who fights like hell to make it illegal for people like the slain mother of two or the murdered grandfather in his seventies to defend their lives against murderous fiends like these guys.
“You can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. It’s not a right that you have,” says Trudeau.
Criminals could potentially harm you and your family with ILLEGAL guns, but YOU, law-abiding citizen, do not have the right to defend yourself with a LEGAL gun. pic.twitter.com/Lt4oS24TiU

Jackboot Trudeau’s Canada IS the America Joe Biden and Robert Francis O’Rourke dream of having us live in. Remember that, and vote accordingly.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
