CBC Forum: What can be done to help La Loche?

  • Implore the Federal Government immediately invest infrastructure funding in First nations Communities across Canada. Invest in safe water services. Invest in gymnasium and covered ice rink facilities to provide healthy activities for youth and to help instill some hope for their future. Partner with universities and colleges and sports associations to implement practicums for students to work in First Nations Communities as part of degree programs and to encourage mentorship. The issues in La Roche are only the "tip of the iceberg". Partnering and investing in First Nations Communities could be an enormous economic opportunity as the people in these communities are a valuable asset to the rest of Canada. Assisting First Nations Communities with legitimate investment in their future is most certainly the right thing to do in a country like Canada that claims to be one of the best places in the world to live in... unless you happen to live in a remote first nations community.
