Saskatchewan school shooting: La Loche faces uphill battle with hope


Bobby Montgrand moved to La Loche, Sask., from a small northern community so his kids could get a better education — now he wants them to live a better life.

"There's a lack of everything," he said. "We don't have nothing. We're 50 years behind."

He wants all levels of government to address the social issues that plague the community — from addiction to poverty and unemployment to the high number of suicides. On top of these struggles, the village made international headlines last week when four people were killed and seven injured in a shooting.
