Inuit Leaders Plead for Support to Fight Suicides

In response to at least 13 suicides across the region this year, Inuit villages in Nunavik, northern Quebec, are on alert.
Inuit leaders are pleading with the Quebec government to train more Inuit social workers and psychologists, rather than flying around a handful of experts with little understanding of their culture.
"When you look at the lives that are being lost through suicide, it is a state of emergency. If it was happening anywhere else in Canada, I don't think that we would be standing aside and watching it happen," said Inuit rights advocate Mary Simon.
