NCN Citizens Talk About NCN Violence

Last month, on March 14th, Citizens gathered to discuss the increase of violence in the NCN community. Speakers included RCMP Sergeant Brendan Flewelling, NNCEA administration and Family and Community Wellness CEO Felix Walker.

“It was clear that everyone is worried about what’s happening in our community,” says Chief Marcel Moody. “We had 260 people register for the night. We split into small
groups to talk, and people were engaged, they had opinions, and they’re determined to see a difference.”

Some of the things agreed upon about the NCN community:

  • violence is not acceptable and it must stop;
  • violence causes physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social issues;
  • violence is affecting our young people and their futures;
  • violence is not part of our culture or traditions;
  • violence is destroying our community;
  • violence must be addressed by all NCN Citizens, not just Chief and Council.
