Found this interesting story on the princerupert.com website.
BC Stats has produced a number of snapshots of the province that show our area of the province is a rather troubled area.
It’s probably no surprise that we’re heavily dependent on social assistance, but with that apparently comes a concern over health care, education, general economic hardship and problems for youth.
The study is worth exploring for a better undertanding of some of the stresses that folks in our area are dealing with.
Perhaps things will change with the prosperity that we are told is just around the corner, but right now, at this time, it seems there’s a lot of people hurting in our communities.
