Description
"As if a murder and a rash of suicides weren't enough, the grim death toll in Labrador's largest Inuit community continues to climb. "The crisis response teams in Nain have been working like they've never worked before," William Barbour, president of the Labrador Inuit Association, said Thursday from the isolated community. "It's not just the suicides that we have been dealing with in Nain. It's the many, many other deaths we've been dealing with."
