In the Legislature MLA Tom Lindsey raised the issue of recent cut in the north. He said due to the fact that clerks at the Conservation Office were cut people are unable to obtain a fishing licence and at the moment there are no Manitoba Housing managers at the local office in Flin Flon. Now he adds we’ve learned that the funding for the Snow Lake Centre on Family Violence has been cut effective July 1st, 2019. He says the Centre provides services like emotional support, crisis intervention, information, referrals and education workshops that people would otherwise have to leave the community to utilize so now that their funding has been cut many of their services will have to be eliminated and vulnerable women, children and men will struggle as a result.
Lindsey stated northern Manitoba shouldn’t be expected to get by with inadequate services adding services available in the north need to be maintained and improved.
