Kugluktuk high school students, including Krista Mannilaq and Darla Evyagotailak pictured here, took to the streets for a second time Feb. 20 to speak out against loosening restrictions on bringing alcohol into their community. On Feb. 24, Kugluktuk residents will vote in a plebiscite to decide if they want to keep a restricted system, where a local alcohol education committee approves requests to bring in alcohol, or move to an open system. Local youth say that more alcohol in their community will bring social problems.
