TORONTO — Mike Schreiner released the following statement regarding the crisis situation in Wunnumin Lake First Nation:
“Doug Ford needs to respond to calls from the Wunnumin Lake First Nation and provide immediate support.
This includes mental health support that is community-driven, culturally appropriate and timely.
Wunnumin Lake First Nation is in crisis. In under 36 hours, a community of less than 700 has experienced three tragic deaths. The psychological trauma of these tragic events is severe and I share my deepest sympathies with the community.
But we need more than just words.
The Ford government must step up and immediately respond to calls for support from the Wunnumin Lake First Nation.”
