Attempted robbery investigation

Two persons are at large after an attempted robbery at the Shell gas station on Range Lake Road.

A news release from the RCMP stated early Wednesday morning the suspects entered the convenience store and one assaulted an employee with pepper spray before jumping over the counter. Nothing was taken but the suspects had fled before RCMP arrived on the scene.

YCS apologizes for 'inappropriate' post

Yellowknife Catholic Schools has apologized for comments one of its employees made about Tlicho hunters last month.

David Radcliffe was the district's aboriginal program activities co-ordinator when he wrote on Facebook that the caribou hunters were "animals."

The apology came in a news release Thursday and in letters sent April 21 from YCS board chairman Simon Taylor to Dene national chief Bill Erasmus and Tlicho executive officer Laura Duncan.

The letters state the board took "immediate, appropriate action" but does not specify what that action was.

Radcliffe no longer appears on the YCS online staff list under the co-ordinator title.

RCMP Const. Elenore Sturko stated police were called to assist in the search for a person in distress because "of an undisclosed situation."
