It was two years ago Monday that the northern Saskatchewan community of La Loche was thrown under the national spotlight for the wrong reasons.
It was on this day in 2016 that a 17 year old boy shot and killed both Dayne and Drayden Fontaine at their home before going to the high school where he killed teachers Adam Wood and Marie Janvier and wounded seven others before being taken into custody.
Not much is being said for obvious reasons on the two-year anniversary of the tragedy, but in a statement today, Prime Minister Trudeau says the people of La Loche continue to heal, come together, rebuild and move forward with hope.
The 17-year-old pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.
He remains in custody and is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 23.
