Anti-drug group meets again

  • Apr. 7, 2008 6:00 p.m.

The group of concerned north-end citizens meeting to do something about drug and alcohol abuse in their communities recently held a second meeting. Speaking out against drug dealers, accessing Gwaii Trust funds, getting kids to speak out about dealers, beefing up social programs such as family dances and family programs, getting a new youth centre and providing more information to the community were just some of the ideas discussed when the group met April 2. They meet again on April 16, 7 pm at the Howard Phillips Community Hall, when the RCMP will present information on the legal perspective. The meetings are organized by the Healthy Communities Society. The group has a letter that needs signatures from those attending the second meeting. Please get in touch with Beryl Parke for more information.
