Canadian Rangers Plan To Recruit In Wollaston

Friday, January 15, 2010 at 14:34

 

 

The Canadian Rangers are making their presence felt in northern Saskatchewan.

 

On Jan. 21-23, members from the organization will be in Wollaston Lake on a recruiting drive.

 

Only 30 spots are open, though, with training set to take place Feb. 9-16.

 

Coordinator Mary Denechezhe says the Rangers will pick who they want for the group, but she hopes many local residents still sign up.

 

Denechezhe says a criminal record check is necessary first.

 

She adds that once local Rangers are trained, the community will be able to use them as first responders.

 

The Canadian Rangers have been Canada's "eyes and ears" in the Arctic for several years.

 

Largely composed of Inuit men on snowmobiles, the organization has long been associated with the Canadian identity.

Wapass Offered To Take Blame For Death: Witness

Friday, January 15, 2010 at 14:31

 

 

A Thunderchild First Nation man offered to take the blame when a friend was killed, a Battleford court heard yesterday.

 

Justin Wapass provided that testimony in the trial of his cousin, Brett Austin Wapass.

 

Brett Wapass is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Tristan Paddy.

 

Paddy died during a house party on the Thunderchild reserve on April 2, 2008, after being accused of stealing a bottle of liquor.

 

A number of witnesses have testified that 20-year-old Elcee Jimmy beat up Paddy.

 

Jimmy is serving a six-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to manslaughter in June 2008.

 

Justin Wapass said after the fight was over, Paddy's pulse was checked, but he didn't have one, so they knew he was dead.

 

He testified that's when Brett Wapass said he'd take the blame for Paddy's death.

RCMP are looking for a Sturgeon Lake man in connection with an assault in the community.

 

Officials say a 46-year-old woman was seriously injured on Boxing Day, and they want to talk to Clifford Daniels about it.

 

They have also charged Daniels with forcible confinement, assault causing bodily harm and uttering threats in addition to some other charges.

 

Daniels is described as 5'8" and 185 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.

 

Police are telling anyone who sees Daniels not to approach him, but to call them immediately.
