After a mass shooting in Nova Scotia in 2020 carried out by a man who impersonated a police officer, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin “Zoolander” Trudeau used the killings as a pretext to decree an end to the sale and use of “assault-style” firearms in the Great White North.

Yesterday, two men carried out what police believe was a drug-related mass stabbing attack in Regina, Saskatchewan that killed 10 and wounded 15 more. The weapons used to kill and wound a couple of dozen Canucks will surely be noted in Ottawa. Expect the Prime Minister to emulate the homeland of the commonwealth and announce an emergency order outlawing assault knives in the days and weeks to come.

Here’s the latest from the Associated Press . . .

Canadian police searched on Monday for two men suspected of stabbing 10 people to death in an indigenous community and a nearby town, as the massive manhunt following one of the nation’s deadliest mass killings entered its second day.

Authorities have said some of the victims were targeted and others appeared to have been chosen at random in a series of attacks on the James Smith Cree Nation and in the town of Weldon in Saskatchewan province. They have given no motive for the crimes, which also left 15 people wounded — but a senior indigenous leader suggested drugs were somehow involved.

Police believe the suspects were last spotted around midday on Sunday in the provincial capital of Regina, about 335 kilometers (210 miles) south of where the stabbings happened. Authorities have issued warnings for Manitoba and Alberta — provinces on either side of Saskatchewan — to also be on alert, and U.S. border officials have been contacted.

With the suspects at large, terror gripped communities in the rural, working class area of Saskatchewan surrounded by farmland but not far from the forests of the north. Many retirees reside in Weldon, which has a population of about 200.

Canadian police say multiple people are dead in 13 locations at two communities in Saskatchewan.

“No one in this town is ever going to sleep again. They’re going to be terrified to open their door,” said Weldon resident Ruby Works, who was close to one of the victims.

The suspects were identified as Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30, but police gave few details about them. Last May, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers issued a wanted list that included Myles Sanderson, writing that he was “unlawfully at large.”

The attack was among the deadliest mass killings in Canada, where such crimes are less common than in the United States. The deadliest gun rampage in Canadian history happened in 2020, when a man disguised as a police officer shot people in their homes and set fires across the province of Nova Scotia, killing 22 people. In 2019, a man used a van to kill 10 pedestrians in Toronto.

“It is horrific what has occurred in our province,” said Rhonda Blackmore, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Saskatchewan.

Police got their first call about a stabbing at 5:40 a.m. on Sunday, and within minutes heard about several more. In all, dead or wounded people were found at 13 different locations on the sparsely populated reserve and in the town, Blackmore said. James Smith Cree Nation is about 30 kilometers (20 miles) from Weldon.

She couldn’t provide a motive, but the chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations suggested the stabbings 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,” said Chief Bobby Cameron.

As the manhunt stretched on while Canadians observed the Labor Day holiday, Regina Police Chief Evan Bray urged anyone with information to come forward.

“They have not been located, so efforts continue,” Bray said in a video posted on Twitter on Monday morning. “We will not stop until we have those two safely in custody.”

The night before, he said police believed the suspects were still in Regina but didn’t say why.

The elected leaders of the three communities that make up the James Smith Cree Nation declared a local state of emergency.

At the James Smith Cree Nation, a convenience store that also serves as a gas station became a gathering place for community members who greeted each other with tears and hugs.

A sign on the door said: “Due to safety concerns with our community we will remain closed until further notice.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement he was “shocked and devastated by the horrific attacks.”

“As Canadians, we mourn with everyone affected by this tragic violence, and with the people of Saskatchewan,” Trudeau said.

    • At a minimum, all blades should have serial numbers. Then they could post ‘kill-free zone’ signs in strategic locations. Problem solved.

      • I’m being given 100-120$ greenbacks per-hr. to finish a few copy past task on my laptop. I even have definitely now no longer imagined like it might even feasible however my (aos-04) confidant buddy turned into receiving $42 k simply in 4 weeks operating this clean opportunity & she has encouraged me to try.

      • Bray: “we will not stop until we have those two safely in custody and the remainder of the nation safely disarmed, by use of force if necessary, for the public well-being” is how the quote should actually read. And then the idiot manchild: “was shocked and devastated” and “as a Canadian 🙄 mourned with Canadians”. Fuck. He prob paid tax dollars to make it happen. 11 dead, more wounded, 13 locations and still at large in a flat, sparsely populated province crawling with rcmp and prob armed with guns now. Yeah, I’ll be keeping mine, thank you very much.

    • A real life blood and guts horror show and where was justin t. and his Gun Control ilk to lend a helping hand? The answer is where such deranged Gun Control ratbassturds always are…NOWHERE.

      • Because blackface justin t’s ideas are brought forth from the democrats of the American south. Rooted in racism and genocide. Not mocking you Miss Debbie for your message is true.

      • Debbie, the idiot manchild was safely ensconced in his multi million dollar cottage now furnished and landscaped with a nod toward Cuba and literally surrounded by heavily armed security and dozens of hired enforcement gang members known locally as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. All on our dime. Because Guns r Bad™. And because we respect and admire him so. What really bothers me is that when His Highness’s time passes, unless some upstanding individual takes everything from him, he will buy an island near his buddy the Agha Khan and live like a fucking king on the proceeds of his racketeering and graft while we struggle under the mess he intentionally created. It makes me see red.

    • Supreme Leader Trudeau will make sure those nasty rascals are really punished with therapy, group counseling, and lots of hugs. It is clearly society’s fault these men acted as they did.

      • House arrest and a few pairs of sparkly socks and cardboard water box things sent as a gift to show his solidarity with the struggles of our Indigenous Peoples. Maybe a nice set of steak knives or something. Plus a few selfies of his royal personage playing dress up in an eagle feather war bonnet. I could fucking puke.

    • Make no mistake, many of us are. And it’s only ‘leftist’ in our three biggest cities. Sound familiar? Seeing a pattern anywhere?

  1. It’s clearly time for Trudon’t to ban multi-blade Swiss Army knives that have those folding thingies that go up, or the concealed carry of any pocket knife, regardless of how ubiquitous they were a generation ago. Then begin crafting legislation to ban hammers and battery acid next.

    Because it worked so well for the UK…

  2. Canada officials want to catch up to England as the stabbing capital of the world? . How F’ed up is it that people living in the middle of nowhere surrounded by Grizzly bears, can’t have firearms readily available? Canada has some serious leadership issues…. as do we here in American. Thank God I live in Texas.

    • Actually our venerable, self imposed nannies have allowed us mere peasants to have a long arm of our choice with a trigger locking device on it and the ammunition “stored nearby and readily available” (vagueness intentional for future persecutions I am sure) in “remote wilderness areas” (so 9/10s of the country) but not a handgun, way too dangerous. So you can pack around something that can kill a truck, even a shorty shotgun 🤫👻🤓 but not something that struggles to take out a person.

  3. They banned guns, so what else were the perps supposed to use? The murder is in the heart, not in the hand holding the tool. Stoopud eedjits.

    Now the locals, having been disarmed, are also subject to the terror of wondering who will be the next sitting duck victim.

    More good evidence we MUST work to retain our lawful right to arms. In a town that small here, after three or four stabbings SOMEONE would grab their “evil handgun” or “more evil AR” and take care of the bidniss law enforcement were still on their way to take care of, maybe.

    • The issue with that is that mere civilians are only allowed by the criminal code to use proportionate force in self defense. If he has a knife, a knife is proportionate, but a gun is disproportionate force, and the user could be arrested and tried for assault with a deadly weapon or homicide. Just like Jolly Ole England, the victims face far worse penalties than the bad guys.

    • Agrarian community…maybe they could keep unregistered, short-handled pitchforks near their doors in case they have to pitch some bad hay(seeds) out the door? I understand that the four-tine version with the black polymer “D”-handle is particularly effective.

      • Montana, you’d be surprised what’s behind my doors (as opposed to “what’s in my wallet” now 😞). More like three tines and L shaped handles though.

    • Tionico, we haven’t been disarmed, the idiot manchild and his lapdogs are just trying to make it happen. Hamfistedly and undoubtedly under direct orders and supervision.

    • Squirrel, there’s still sticks and stones. And fist and feet. And. Hold these cement blocks while you swim. No criticism to you. I got your sarcasm. My point is; you want them dead, you can make them dead.

  4. Why not just ban knives?? After all, “gun bans” work . . . just ask dacian the demented dips***.

    Perhaps Prime Minister Zoolander should just outlaw murder. If outlawing something prevents it from happening, that should work.

    Not sure which outcome is worse, a senile, stupid (p)Resident, or an idiot man-child Prime Minister, but I can say definitively that both options suck greasy puppy dog nuts.

  5. “…..“No one in this town is ever going to sleep again. They’re going to be terrified to open their door,” said Weldon resident Ruby Works, who was close to one of the victims…..”

    No worries Ruby.
    Justin Castreau will grease the palms of a few local politicians and community ‘organizers’, then build a few basketba…err……….hockey rinks.
    They’ll also be sure to make alcohol and legal drugs readily available to help you all ‘sleep’.

    Those locals who support severe restrictions on private ownership of firearms may need to ‘double dose’ before attempting to sleep for the next few years. Hope that drowns out the screams and soothes the night terrors.

    Good luck and my condolences.

  6. Please line up to have your hands and feet amputated to control assault punches and kicks, your teeth pulled to control assault bites, and your neck bones fused to control assault head butts. It’s for your safety, eh!

    • And sticks, and rocks, and fists. The idiot anti-gunners keep missing the fact that the necessary agent in a murder is . . . the scumbag committing the murder.

    • Talk to people who has survived being nearly shot vs stabbed to death.

      Truth bomb.
      The stabbing experience is significantly more horrific.
      Even witnessing a stabbing is more traumatic then a shooting.

      • Or any of the common weapons used prior to gun powder. There’s a bunch of really interesting things we used a couple thousand years ago to slaughter each other.

        • Like maces. Drawing blood with blades wasn’t kosher for clergy on the battlefield, but blunt force trauma, broken bones, and internal injuries were A-OK!

      • Knife attacks are often done in a blitz, the attacker rushing up and delivering multiple random thrusts to the torso, often self-injuring as the grip on the handle slips and the hand contacts the base of the blade. Victims are sometimes so overcome by shock that they don’t even try to defend themselves, and will just stand there and take it.

  7. This is fucked up, but I can’t help myself.

    Told ya so.

    It’s not the weapon, it’s the person. That’s all it takes. If they are motivated enough, they will kill enough. The tool they use is irrelevant. You won’t remove the tool from circulation around the earth, and you won’t stop someone motivated enough to hurt others.

  8. Canada will become like communist China and socialist England. Two countries where Mass stabbings are quite common. And all three have gun control.

  9. Although the Far Right will be laughing and dancing in the blood of the victims the reality is that Canada does not have the mass shootings like the U.S. does and its because of tough gun laws.

    In Capitalvania were life is considered cheap and expendable by the radical Far Right, Paddock at Los Vegas killed 60 people and wounded 863. In the Florida gay night club shooting 50 people were killed. And at Sandy Hook 26 kids and 21 kids at Uvalde and 17 at Parkland, Florida. Just a few of the endless carnage that people in the U.S. with assault rifles have killed.

    No law is perfect and saying Ha, Ha look they killed 10 people with knives in a drug gang rampage in Canada is really sick but that is the hallmark of the depraved Far Right.

    • All it proves is some deranged individuals bought into the political and media hype of scary, super deadly assault weapons being ever so much more powerful than any other rifle/weapon.
      The attack in Canada, and those in other countries only prove it isn’t the weapon/tool, but the person using it. Unless and until the human factor is dealt with, such things will continue.
      Lastly, it has always been the control freaks on the progressive left who dance in the blood of the victims. Those on the far right mourn the loss of life and continue to look for real answers to prevent such crimes. Not hand over our rights and freedom to corrupt/power hungry politicians.

    • Just wait it will come out they were Trudue fans!!!!

      They knew they could away with their attacks, cause of the gun ban!!!

      I noticed you still claim gun bans work even after 3 shootings in England in a week!!!

      Have they caught the perp???

      Your ancestors mass murdered colonist!!!!

    • No law is perfect

      You are correct, NO law is perfect and if NOT for the fucked-up laws prohibiting those folks from owning defensive weapons it is entirely possible that someone might have shot those scumbags and not only SAVED some lives but prevented the pain and suffering of a lot more. See there dacy boy even YOU can make a valid point (rarely) when you put some…. haaahaaaHaHAAAAAAAAAAHahaaaha…. Sorry ’bout that…. thought into it, even if it was inadvertent.

      Just a few of the endless carnage that people in the U.S. with assault rifles have killed.

      That could have been MINIMIZED if the fucking cowards that are paid to protect people from those depraved killers had done their jobs… STFU dacy boy, you’re in over your head….. AGAIN.

    • Once again, dacian the demented dips*** LIES to bolster his narrative. It WAS NOT 863 injured by Paddock, you lying c*** – from a LEFTIST source (Wikipedia): “From his 32nd-floor suites in the Mandalay Bay hotel, he fired more than 1,000 bullets, killing 60 people[a] and wounding at least 413. The ensuing panic brought the total number of injured to approximately 867.” Stupid sheeple panicking and killing themselves is the fault of . . . the stupid sheeple.

      But your are far too stupid to understand that, you Leftist/fascist tw**.

      • To the Lamp that went out in his head.

        So the people who got trampled did not count? You really are sick and you are the typical Far Right who cares nothing about the sufferings or consequences of a total lack of gun control in the U.S.

        Do you even realize how sick your comment was? Of course not.

        • dacian, Do you even realize how sick your comment was? Of course not!
          You have replaced “common sense” with “common scents”!

    • Canad DOES have mass shootings, lol.

      2020
      2017
      2006
      1996
      1992
      1989
      1985

      Use the fucking internet you lying sack of shit.

  10. Been happening in Britain for years as a result of their gun bans, the progression (or regression) is natural. Been shot, been stabbed didn’t LIKE either one but much rather be shot…

  11. There are plenty of rifles and shotguns in Canada. Don’t know where they were no matter what anyone says Canadians mistreat natives probably few cops close by

    • Yes, there is. No real shortage of handguns either other than in a general sense. And no doubt all those rifles and shotguns were unloaded and safely locked up as per legislation. Nothing like the cops granting themselves a perceived tactical advantage at the cost of the proletariat working class. I mean, who the fuck are we at the end of the day, right? It’s not like we sign their paycheques or anything…

    • VC, I should add this; Canadians do not ‘mistreat’ natives: however (both) our governments do by often ignoring conditions on reservations (those being a mistreatment in and of themselves and precisely no different than in your country, where in fact that system originated). But the native populations are not blameless in their current difficulties: no amount of gov spending will break the destructive cycle of substance abuse. Like any junkie they will not stop and will blame everything and everyone but themselves for their issues. Even harder/more difficult when you are (often) born into it. Stones, glass houses, etc.

    • I’ve lived in central BC all my adult(ish) life, very rural, and I honestly can’t think of one sIngle house/cabin I’ve ever been in that didn’t have at least one firearm happily in residence, and prob half of those belonging to ‘unlicensed’ owners (🙄 like cattle with ear tags). Cities/towns are another story entirely.

    • Vc, honestly I’m surprised it happened to this extent up here. I dare say that in most peaceful burbs in your country it would’ve played out much the same. Where this happened would be akin to a reservation in North Dakota surrounded by hundreds of miles of flat prairie, very few homes, prob a rather elderly population and none of them expecting such a thing at zero dark thirty. And it certainly has happened down your way. You have hundreds of millions of people and hundreds of millions of firearms. We have tens of millions of people and tens of millions of firearms.

  12. yes, you are right. Caught them by surprise. I too am surprised, as many of these homes probably had a .22 rifle or shotgun. So sad.

    • Very sad. Tons of hunting rifles up here, bolt and lever. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t have a nice 30-30 or a nice 30-06 in the cabinet or behind the bench seat. But yeah, entirely unexpected. Hard lessons. Hopefully some good will come out of it via shining a light on the flat out lies of our self serving, grifting criminal politicians and gestapo minded, mercenary police force. I won’t hold my breath on that one. Straight up assholes, every last single one of them.

  13. I would like to find a record somewhere of all the mass murders in the US and Canada, Native American or First Nations, that have occurred since “white men” arrived, with numbers killed and injured, and with what weapons. Tomahawks, knives, arrows and spears, buried alive or drowned, black powder guns, revolvers, shotguns, swords and clubs, repeating guns, maces, bolos, or slings, as well as more modern weapons. Then measure these against the relative population, like murders per capita: You might find that the past was far more dangerous than modern times. Just sayin.
    So when are manchild & LG Brandon going to make them all illegal? Ignorance is bliss.

    • Marcia, as soon as their collective masters have secured the next elections. Or so they think. And please, the proper title is “idiot manchild”, we must respect our higher officials and address them in the manner they deserve…
