Too many aboriginal people die in Montreal


The article about the deaths of aboriginal people in Montreal was very disturbing. Life in the big city far away from home appears good at first but in reality, the city is a scary place.

Alcohol, drugs, gambling facilities and prostitution are everywhere and it is sometimes very easy to end up in this vicious circle.

Aboriginals can be found almost every night at the many bars on St. Laurent just south of St. Catherine just a short walk from the native friendship centre. Maybe the native friendship centre should remain open during the evening when more people are in the area that can use their help. I have noticed an NFC patrol car in Montreal several times but what I believe is that they should send their staff into the bars to check-up on patrons.

We need to take action now before anyone else dies on these streets.
