Centre would include 10-bed addiction and mental health treatment centre, pool and sweat lodge
Northern Saskatchewan residents are hoping Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will champion their drive for a $21-million mental health centre in La Ronge.
Advocates say the centre is key to attacking the mental health and addictions crisis plaguing the north.
Lac La Ronge Indian Band Chief Tammy Cook-Searson made her pitch directly to Trudeau Wednesday during the first day of the Liberal caucus retreat in Saskatoon. Cook-Searson said she’s confident he’ll help.
