A Manitoba First Nation is “extremely concerned and saddened” after it says a second community member in less than a month died while in custody.
Sagkeeng First Nation Chief Derrick Henderson says the community will ensure the facts surrounding the death of Dwayne Louis Simard on March 1 are brought to light and justice is done.
“The frequency with which inmates of correctional institutions are coming to their deaths is alarming and intolerable,” Henderson wrote in a release Wednesday evening.
On Tuesday, Correctional Service Canada confirmed Simard’s death at Stony Mountain Institution.
