Some residents in Clyde River, Nunavut are wondering if their cultural centre is going to be turned into a place of rehabilitation for people with drug and alcohol problems.

Some residents in Clyde River, Nunavut are wondering if their cultural centre is going to be turned into a place of rehabilitation for people with drug and alcohol problems.

That’s because of a question from Pangnirtung MLA Margaret Nakashook who asked in the legislature if the government was still considering repurposing the facility into a rehab centre.

The answer “still considering” is what is getting all the attention.

  1. Build another for drugs and alcohol facility and leave the Cultural Centre for Nunavumiun. It is an asset for the well being of Nunavumiun. Leave it as it is!!!
