The AFNQL Supports the Innu Nation in its Commitment to Fighting Drug Trafficking and Abuse

Wendake, February 6, 2019 – The Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL) welcomes the efforts of the Innu Nation that has adopted a Declaration on the fight against drug trafficking and abuse today. This was made public in the context of a political meeting of the leaders of the Innu Nation held in Uashat on this issue of public health and safety.

“Like other First Nations have done in recent years, the Innu Nation’s leaders have taken a concrete action that proves to be an essential condition for a change in the well-being of children, youth, families and entire communities. The political will to mobilize to ensure the safety and well-being of the population through a joint declaration on the fight against drug trafficking and abusive consumption demonstrates that the issue is a priority and deserves immediate attention. Unfortunately, the problems of drug abuse and psychological distress still affect many of our own, and it is through engaging actions such as that of the Innu Nation that the situation will improve,” said the Chief of the AFNQL, Ghislain Picard.

Public safety, mental health and wellness services to the population are part of the AFNQL’s priority issues for the next three years.
