JAMES SMITH CREE NATION- The chief of a Saskatchewan First Nation shattered by a deadly series of stabbings says acts of violence must stop. Chief Wally Burns of the James Smith Cree Nation spoke alongside other First Nations leaders this morning, one day after RCMP arrested a suspect. Burns says words cannot express the effects of what has happened, and the many families who have lost loved ones need support. The key suspect in the rampage that left 10 people dead and 18 injured died in police custody following a four-day manhunt. RCMP say Myles Sanderson went into medical distress shortly after being pursued in a stolen vehicle and arrested in a ditch beside a highway north of Saskatoon. The only other suspect, Sanderson’s brother Damien, was found dead Monday
