Walk for Yes Voters on Nain Alcohol Ban

The plebiscite to ban alcohol in Nain has been a major topic of discussion in the community this past week.

Some residents are even gathering together to make it known that they will be voting in favor of banning alcohol.

Beni Andersen is one of the organizers of the group.

On Saturday, she and about 20 other people walked around Nain with banners to show their support to make Nain a dry community.

She says people from all age groups took part in the walk.

Children, youth, adults and seniors all came out to show their support.

Andersen says some of the children were as young as five-years-old.

The route they took began at the airstrip, took them around the Nain Husky Center and back to the airstrip.

Also included in the route was the local beer supplier: Puff n’ Snacks.

There, they attempted to encourage people to vote yes.

Andersen hopes to have a meeting soon to determine what they plan to do next.
