GN should get serious about suicide

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

I wonder when the Nunavut government is going to get serious about the amount of suicide among the youth of Nunavut.

Don’t say “it’s up to the community.” You were elected and highly paid to fix the problems. Bloody well get on with it! Or resign. Start kicking ass where applicable.

Don’t spend massive amounts of money on southern experts and their families, who will accomplish nothing apart from their own bank balances and getting work for relatives.

We have had about 10 recreation directors in the past 15 years, and between them they have not organized any youth groups or activities for youth — too busy flying to Yellowknife. Check the records.
