James Smith Cree Nation, but he was accustomed to life as a fugitive.A Global News review of his history before Saskatchewan’s criminal courts shows he spent much of his adult life evading justice for the crimes he committed.Just two weeks after he turned 18, his court file says he attacked a man at the James Smith Cree Nation with a knife, assaulted a woman, and was “running from police.”For the next 14 years, he appeared in provincial court files again and again as “at large” and wanted on warrants as he accumulated victims throughout Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan stabbings: ‘Broken’ father grieves for murdered wife and son During that time, he was charged with a remarkable 125 crimes, according to the 47 cases filed against him in the province’s criminal courts. (His youth record cannot be reported.)Those include two attempted murders, 18 assaults and three break-and-enters, the court records show.

Four of the assaults were stabbings — using knives, a fork and broken beer bottles.He stole cars, robbed a Subway restaurant and broke into a liquor store in Melfort.

He threatened to kill people and walked naked in a park near a Saskatoon elementary school.He resisted police when they caught up with him, once kicking an officer in the face and head, but when he got into the courtroom, his charges were sometimes stayed or withdrawn.For his 59 convictions, his sentences were as minimal as house arrest.

Winnipeg ICU doc says fall COVID bump may not hit as hard, but health system will be affected
intensive care doctor on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic says from his perspective, Manitobans may not be hit quite as hard by a fall wave of the virus as they have by other waves.Dr. Anand Kumar told 680 CJOB’s The News that he’s seen things generally improving on the COVID front.“I think we’re definitely getting there,” he said.“We’re still going to see significant surprises now and then — it’s probably not going to be everything rosy down the road, but on the overall angle, things are getting better.” Latest Manitoba numbers reveal COVID-19 severe outcomes up Kumar, who is also an infectious disease specialist, said one of the main problems he foresees with a fall wave will be hospital staff contracting the virus and missing work, thereby adding to the already serious staffing issues facing local hospitals.“Although we may not see the kind of numbers we’ve had in the past with ICU admissions and hospital admissions, we’re still going to see a significant bump,” he said.“Where we’re going to get hit is — given that there are no restrictions in the community — we’ll probably see a lot of health-care workers go down with COVID in terms of having to take time off work, and that will redouble the difficulty in terms of staffing.”According to last week’s provincial data, COVID-related hospitalizations had seen a slight increase, with 70 people taken to hospital, up from 67 the previous week.Of those Manitobans, 16 people were admitted to ICU, up from nine.As far as COVID prevention is concerned, booking appointments became available Monday for those who are eligible for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.
