Two of the four victims were killed at the La Loche Community School’s Dene High School building, where seven others were injured.
On Thursday, Janvier told CKOM’s Saskatoon Afternoon host David Kirton that he has rethought his position.
“Everybody was shocked in La Loche, it was still fresh when I made that announcement,” he said. “It’s really important the education remains the top priority and we can’t be stalling.”
Premier Brad Wall said earlier this week it would be unlikely the school would be demolished, but added the Northern Lights School Division would have the final say.
The school division is also working towards a strategy of when they will reopen the school. In previous interviews, officials have said it will be Feb. 22 at the earliest.
As for the community, Janvier said the support they have received from across Saskatchewan and Canada has been felt strongly.
“It’s getting better by the day, absolutely. We are slowly healing.”
