    Leona Aglukkaq Says "Good Education" Will Help Starving Inuit Children

    An APTN reporter asked the minister how the Conservatives will address the "crisis."

    In a territory where 60% of Inuit preschoolers have gone a day without eating, Leona Aglukkaq says education can help solve food insecurity.

    She replied that it comes down to education.

    Driscoll pressed her further, asking for a short-term solution.

    Driscoll pressed again: "Aside from the program, aside from the longterm jobs, is there any immediate support your government can do to help these hungry people?"

    Members of Feeding My Family, a Facebook group about food security in the North, were unimpressed with the Minister's comments.
