Leaders in northern Saskatchewan will speak today about the steps they are taking to recover after a deadly school shooting almost a year ago.
According to a news release, La Loche mayor Robert St. Pierre will lead the event at the high school.
That is where some of the tragic events on January 22, 2016 took place.
On that day, a young gunman killed two teen brothers at a home in La Loche and then went to the school where he continued shooting.
He killed a male teacher and a female aide and wounded seven others before he was apprehended by the RCMP.
