Grievance Workshops To Tackle Community Issues In Wha-Ti

The Tlicho Government is sponsoring grievance workshops to address drug and alcohol issues among other topics that impact residents living in Wha-Ti.

Workshop facilitator Marianne Jeremick’ca says the workshops allow the residents to speak about their concerns and the issues that impact them, rather than having the government speak on their behalf.

I want the communities to come to us and say these are the things that we are dealing with. This is the way I want to get help.

The workshop will also address the impact of the possibility of an all-weather road being constructed in the community and how it may enable drug transportation into Wha-Ti.

Three workshops have already taken place and one more will take place June 6th at the Old Pomie Building in Wha-Ti at 6pm.
