The Minster of Sport, Culture and Heritage brought her information gathering tour to the Women’s Resource Center in Flin Flon Saturday. Rochelle Squires who is also responsible for the Status of Women says she is in awe at the services provided by the Center while dealing with economic challenges in the north whether its dealing with the industry or geographical boundaries, being border town also presents its own challenges and yet what she’s heard so far is that these women are not going to let any barriers stop them from providing the critical resources, often life saving resources, that they need to ensure that women and girls have supports that they need.
Squires says she is looking at emerging issues and needs as she reviews programs that fall under her portfolio. She also met with staff at the Library, the Arts Council and Norva Center.
