”I think it is important to make sure that girls are included”
Nunavut’s MLAs highlighted the need to make sure sports are safe and inclusive on Wednesday, Feb. 26, which was also Pink Shirt Day, the day when anti-bullying initiatives are celebrated.
Mila Kamingoak, MLA for Kugluktuk, asked Lorne Kusugak, minister for community and government services, what steps Kusugak’s department is taking to ensure individuals involved in sports programs in the territory are made aware of how to deal with abuse and harassment of athletes.
“Your department’s proposed 2020-23 business plan indicates on page 212 that one of its priorities for [the] 2020-21 fiscal year is to develop resources to ensure sport and recreation stakeholders are prepared to address and eliminate abuse and harassment in sport.
