VANCOUVER, Dec 12 (IPS) – Suicide rates are now five to seven times higher for First Nations youth than for non-aboriginal youth, according to Health Canada, and among Inuit youth, suicide rates are 11 times the national average. Some aboriginal bands have suicide rates over 800 times the national average.

In northern British Columbia, in the rural Hazelton region, the Wrinch Memorial Hospital has seen 111 suicide attempts since Jan. 1, 2007. There were also unreported suicide attempts, so the number is believed to be much higher. In November, there were seven suicide attempts in one week alone.

Nahendeh MLA Disappointed in Decision on Airport Fuel Services Contact

December 12, 2007

FORT SIMPSON (December 12, 2007) – The Member of the Legislative Assembly for Nahendeh, Mr. Kevin Menicoche, today expressed his extreme disappointment in how the GNWT Department of Transportation is proceeding with a contract for the provision of aviation fuel services at the Fort Simpson Airport.

Mr. Menicoche says, “I am shocked, and disappointed, that Minister Yakeleya and his department are issuing a Request for Proposals for the provision of these services. Over the past few weeks we have held a number of meetings between the Minister and representatives of the Liidlii Kué First Nation to negotiate a contract that would see local aboriginal people involved in an economic opportunity in their own back yard. This decision by the Department flies in the face of an arrangement we had worked out with the Minister and I am dismayed by their actions.”
