Apparently none of the folks who used to live there do...
After a “chaotic” public meeting in Natuashish that drew hundreds, a vote on lifting the troubled community’s controversial alcohol ban was set for Friday.Somebody remind me... what did it cost Canadian taxpayers to pick up the 725 residents of Davis ("ghastly social problems and substance abuse") Inlet and move them to their "fresh start" paradise?
The turnout Tuesday in the remote Innu community, which exceeded participation in the recent band council elections, suggested just how deep feelings go on either side of the issue. The meeting ran more than four hours and laid bare the rancour dividing the Northern Labrador community.
“It was a chaotic meeting, people were shouting back and forth,” said Mr. Poker, the former chief and staunch advocate of the ban. “People were drunk. At the meeting some people were stepping to the microphone, screaming and shouting the way drunk people do.”
Live and don't learn... that's us.
