I agree with Janice, who has been trying relentlessly to convince us all that we require a Detox Centre here.

What more evidence do we need? In every RCMP report, most and at times all of those detained are arrested due to excessive intoxication - being a danger to themselves and to others.

We boast that Terrace is the Hub of the North...with all surrounding Communities gathering here; yet we keep sliding off the table the suggestion that perhaps we can host a Detox Centre in this 'hub'. What is 'dat all about?! Are we the Hub of the North...or are we not?

We can't keep sweeping this problem under the rug. At one point...we gotta pick up that rug to shake it out...and then we're left with the mess underneathe it that we continually ignored. Get my drift?
Do you know what the hell you are doing?!

Yes. This is all shameful behaviour. As a Tsimshian woman, I cannot help feeling something akin to shame/embarrassment whenever coming upon a drunken Indian of any age, witnessing a male Indian peeing or spitting in public, or seeing a native woman walking down the street with black eyes and swollen lips.

There are also many, many non-Native hopeless and helpless drunks in this fair community. There are also many non-native adult males who regularly use their "life-mates" as punching bags, and treat them like worthless slaves. There are many non-Indians in Terrace who have yet to have their monthly baths, and stink to high heaven. Why don't we see them parading around downtown?

Because, for some strange, inexplicable reason, Indian drunks do not feel a need to hide these shameful behaviours behind closed doors. Many of them do not have a door to hide behind....

Regardless, the suffering is the same. Humans do not set out to become drunken, angry, abusive riff-raff. It is slow death....from the inside ~ out. And very painful too, apparently.

We need a detox here! Desperately.
Good grief!

Someone make this all stop!

Last report was of a kid challenging his parent with a knife cuz his play unit's electronic cord was removed due to punishment....a grown man suspected of lighting a fire by Brolly Square...people not being 'nice' to one another......hang up 911 calls... a Mother teaching her teenaged daughter how to shoplift meat from a grocery store...abusive relationships left/right and centre... people pulling their pants down IN PUBLIC to have sex within FULL VIEW of passersby...etc etc etc...

STOP already people! Claim responsibility of your lives and get some help. And please. Do NOT reproduce until you do so!
