NICG Continuing Alcohol Consultations

The Nain Inuit Community Government (NICG) will continue to meet with various organizations throughout October to discuss alcohol in the community.

They originally planned to meet with the organizations until the end of September.

Tony Andersen is the AngajukKak for the NICG.

He says it’s been difficult to schedule meetings with the different groups they plan to meet with.

The groups they have met with, or plan to meet with, include the Nunatsiavut Government, Child, Youth and Family Services and the provincial Department of Justice.

They will continue to meet with the various groups throughout this month.

Andersen says the meetings have been very positive so far.

He adds that it hasn’t only been alcohol up for discussion.

They are also addressing other issues in the community such as infrastructure needs and a lack of services.

The NICG hopes to have met with the groups involved by the end of this month.

  1. Unbelievable. The Residents of Nain have voted not ONCE but TWICE to direct the NICG to leave this alone. Yet NICG with it's unelected council still pursues this after the People have clearly told them not to. Kicking a Dead horse is right. If the NICG put even a 1/4 as much energy into improving services and finding work for people as they have in this matter, imagine how much more the quality of life in Nain would improve.
