 NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is scheduled to visit La Loche on Tuesday. 

The village was devastated last week when a gunman killed four people, including two brothers. 

Mulcair will be joining Georgina Jolibois, who was the mayor of La Loche until last fall, when she was elected as the riding's representative in the House of Commons. Jolibois has been in the community for the past week.

Both Mulcair and Jolibois will attend the funeral for Drayden Fontaine, 13, and Dayne Fontaine, 17.

The funeral is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at 2 p.m. CST in La Loche.
