Suicide problem continues to rise in the North

Another call for help is coming for Northwestern Ontario First Nations.  A member of the Pikangikum First Nation has written a letter he hopes will bring about more awareness of his community's plight.  Gordon Peters says in the last month and a half 5 young people have committed suicide.  Peters says more needs to be done to improve the living conditions at Northern First Nations.
