Canadian police: 10 Dead, 15 Injured from Stabbings – The Hill, Sep 5, 2022
Gun control didn’t work. Maybe it’s time for some knife control.
A series of stabbings in two communities in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan left 10 people dead and 15 wounded, authorities said Sunday. Police are looking for two suspects.

“It is horrific what has occurred in our province today,” Blackmore said.
