  • It would be good to have a traditional pharmacy of some sort
  • A workshop for youth about the consequences for criminal actions
  • It will be beneficial for kids to see their parents get help

What people said was needed for prevention and recreation
  • We need more youth programs, this will keep our youth busy
  • more youth activities to stop crime
  • Recreation
  • Focus groups
  • Family support groups
  • more recreation, things to do for youth, culture
  • More things to do within the community
  • Recreation
  • Actually spend recreation monies on recreation
  • Our youth are bored
  • Bring back old traditional activities
  • More employment
  • More Lnu sport tournaments
  • Recreation activities
  • Set the basketball nets backup regardless
  • There should be more activities for the kids like a youth center – having the gym open
  • I think if we can bring back more culture to our community like how to build a sweat and conduct it, then we can instill more pride to our community members, helping them to also be more self sufficient!
  • More cultural community events – A powwow once a year is not enough!
what people said about regulation and enforcement
What people said about Regulation and Enforcement
  • Penalties such as removal or eviction from houses which are being used as drug houses
  • Ship the dealers out and enforce it and stick to it!!
  • Drug testing youth
  • Employee drug testing
other concerns and comments were
Other concerns and comments were:
  • NADACA is here to help but it doesn’t seem like they’re doing their job, they’re not targeting the problems in our community, and at times are unreachable.
  • More information on how drugs effect your health
  • Chief and Councillors, Health Center, Pictou Landing School and the community need to be more involved. RCMPs need to start taking this issue more seriously
  • More knowledge who does what in community and what they are here for
  • Families against drugs and the children will follow
  • Chief and council need to step up and demand something be done about this drug problem
  • I think Chief and Council fear targeting the drug dealers because they fear them and fear losing out on votes
  • Everybody knows who sells the dope and nobody does anything
  • Booze is being sold to kids on rez is a concern
  • Alcohol is a major problem
