THE YOUNG people of the Village of Gingolx (Kincolith) are preparing to “Take Back the Village” March 3.
This march takes place the same weekend as a youth basketball tournament in the community to maximize their exposure and awareness raising. Gingolx, and many other non-aboriginal communities, is struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, violence and misdirected youth, said Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Donovan Tait.
“This is very much a community-led event, but one that the RCMP here is supporting 100 per cent. We will be involved at some level. It appears to shaping to be a pretty significant event,” said Tait.
