By Julia Peterson Local Journalism Initiative Reporter The First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) will gather in prayer and mourning at its Saskatchewan campuses after the stabbing attacks over the weekend. “FNUniv stands with those who are hurting and in pain,” said university president Jacqueline Ottmann. “We open our hearts in support and warmly embrace you with thoughts and prayers for hope and healing. What happened is unfathomable, a beautiful morning darkened by loss. Collectively, we feel the shock, so together, we will mourn, pray, and heal. “Our hearts are broken, but our will and resolve to survive and move through this trauma, from the unspeakable, is unshaken.” On Wednesday, students and community members at the university’s three campuses, in Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, will gather at 7 p.m.
