La Loche shooting victim discouraged

--

REGINA - Victims of a deadly school shooting in northern Saskatchewan say they're still not getting the help they need to heal more than 15 months after the tragedy.

A gunman opened fire at the La Loche high school in January 2016, killing a teacher and teacher's aide, and wounding seven others. He also killed two brothers at a nearby home.

Klyne lost all vision in her left eye, can only see dark shadows in her right eye, and has numerous pellets lodged in 13 different spots from her jaw to her chest. She's been told it's too risky to have surgery to remove the pellets.

"With all damage done to the muscles and the tissues, they wanted me to do massage therapy," she said.

She received a $50,000 insurance payment and some benefits for massage therapy.

But she says workers' compensation isn't covering the 30 massage therapy treatments her doctor has ordered. They covered five, then bumped that up to 24, she said.

"When a doctor says you need treatment and you need this many treatments, they shouldn't say, 'no, you can't have them.' If your doctor says you need to have this, there's a reason for it," Klyne said Tuesday at the legislature in Regina.

Klyne says she's getting $800 a month for rent and about $700 for income replacement, but it's not enough to cover the move she had to make to Saskatoon for continuous medical treatment.

Deputy premier Don Morgan says the government will make sure Klyne gets support from victims' services and through workers' compensation. …
