Words cannot come close to describing the loss experienced in the fire that occurred in the community of Pikangikum on February 22, 2023.
Our condolences to the whole community and our support goes out to you in this extremely difficult time. May your path to healing receive the aid your people deserve.
Our far north communities’ capacity to respond to such devastating emergencies must receive immediate adequate government support. This is an extremely painful reminder of our denied requests for appropriate emergency services in our remote communities. We deserve this just as much as the next community.
Again our prayers are with you and God Bless,
Rebecca Friday Deputy Grand Chiefdeputygrandchief@mushkegowuk.ca
