A grisly discovery on the river north of Saskatoon.
The Saskatoon Fire & Protective Services Water Rescue Team was called, this morning, to downstream from the Clarks Borough Ferry on the South Saskatchewan.
"There was a sighting of a body and our water team recovered the body and then took it to the closest shoreline and transfered that body to the RCMP," explained Battalion Chief, Dave Rumpel.
So far there's no word on the gender or identity of the victim nor whether foul play was involved in their death.
RCMP say they pursued a vehicle on Highway 16 early Tuesday morning because the driver matched the description of a suspect in a North Battleford stabbing.
An officer tried to pull over a suspected stolen truck on Highway 16 westbound towards Lloydminster, and police say it turned into a pursuit.
The suspect driver allegedly reached a speed of 150 kilometres, and police ended the chase. Officers further down the highway used a spike belt to stop the vehicle.
RCMP say they later ruled out any involvement by the driver in the stabbing.
Regina's City Council believes the state of the Civic Employees Pension Plan is so dire it's willing to break the law to try to fix it.
The plan is facing a mammoth $238 million dollar deficit, a state the pension board insists is approaching a crisis. City Council could have voted Tuesday night to increase the amount employers and the enrolled employees contribute each pay cheque. But Council chose not to do that.
