Education program invaluable

  • Print

Re: At-risk youth school in limbo (July 15). Time and time again, within the scope of our criminal justice system, we see that it is inherently more efficient to focus on prevention and supports, rather than spending millions on incarceration later on.

As government continues to increase the budget for police operations to deal with repeat offenders, it remains shocking to me that we even question funding programs such as the Northern Stars Education Program.

The program is clearly invaluable to the at-risk youth that come through it, as they are given the supports, education and pathways needed to best fulfil their potential.

The province would be wise to step up and fund this program and more programs like it in order to provide the best future for all Manitobans.
