I don’t get truly outraged very often, but this story truly outrages me. It should outrage you, too.
Larry Heon, who is also the mayor of Loon Lake, says he was sleeping when he got a 911 call automatically routed to him at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday about the blaze on the Makwa Sahgaiehcan reserve.
“But we didn’t go,” said Heon.
The children were two and 18 months. They died at the scene.
Or, perhaps, they were killed – by the stupidity and indifference of unknown others.
I first learned about this horror on CBC Radio, when Niki Ashton raised it in the House. She was understandably emotional about what has happened.
This story needs to be better-known – and we need to know how such a thing could happen. You can contact Ashton here.
