Now more than ever Canada, and all of us, need to be with James Smith Cree Nation as they begin to heal.#skpoli #cdnpoli https://t.co/DIk9WYap9y
But now he is dead:
The 7 p.m. vigils will not have to be held in fear. Thank goodness he is in custody and the grieving and mourning can be done without the additional fear due to him still being at large. 🙏— Elizabeth Cardoza Taylor GET VACCINATED & MASKED! (@ET2Taylor) September 7, 2022

Here is the police press conference:
The police in this country is opaque by default, often unnecessarily (the guy’s dead!) and deserves every bit of distrust it gets as a result— Robyn Urback (@RobynUrback) September 8, 2022

And I wonder if we will ever know what happened - in James Smith Cree Nation, in Weldon, and in the four days since. A list of the massacre victims was released today

As much as I’m glad Myles Sanderson was caught I’m struggling w/ seeing Canadians celebrate his death along w/ the casual and not so casual racism they’re so freely sharing.— First Evening Star (@OnaagoshinAnang) September 8, 2022
The disparity on how we view white perpetrators of violence vs. racialized ones has never been so clear.
