When Whitehorse’s new minimum security jail opened last year, programs for First Nations were said to be a top priority.

One inmate facing trial, however, has launched a human rights complaint against the jail alleging he has no access to Aboriginal programming.

APTN National News reporter Shirley McLean has this story.
