A house fire near Prince Albert on New Year’s Day claimed the home of Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations senate member Sol Sanderson and his wife. It is believed that a problem with the chimney led to the fire. Grandson Dane Robins set up an online fundraiser for his grandparents as they had no insurance as they were waiting to finalize the sale of their Prince Albert home. Sanderson, who served on the Prince Albert City Police Force and held the position of executive director, first vice president and ultimately served as FSIN chief for six years, is credited by the FSIN as one of the founders of FSIN schools, including SIIT, SIFC and SICC.
