According to an email from the governor general’s secretary’s office Tuesday night, Governor General Mary Simon is scheduled to visit the James Smith Creation Nation on Wednesday to offer her condolences to the families affected by the Saskatchewan att*ck.

The Saskatchewan stabbings over Labor Day weekend this year are considered the worst mass m*rders in recent Canadian history.

It began on Sept. 4 when local RCMP received multiple calls from the James Smith Cree Nation about stabbings at various locations, which later turned into a four-day manhunt.

On September 5, Simon released a statement about the Saskatchewan stabbing, saying he was “deeply shocked to hear about the att*cks.”

“I am filled with sadness for the survivors, families and friends who have lost loved ones from these communities,” he said. “These are devastating losses that words cannot even come close to describing.”

“Canadians mourn with you today and pray for your courage in these difficult times,” he said.

Simon is Canada’s first Indigenous Governor General.
