(PUBLISHER’S NOTE: All the MLA candidates were asked to comment on the best way forward for the sobering centre in Yellowknife. Go here to see the full question and context.)
I know the Salt River First Nation in Thebacha set up a Men’s Shelter and that is part of such a solution.
In particular I think it is barbaric that we need to have women’s shelters to provide safe haven against abusive partners, and too often alcohol is at the base of those problems.
I would happily support any initiative that seeks and implements solutions.
