Yukon jail hit with human rights complaint over access to Aboriginal programs

APTN National News
When Whitehorse’s new minimum security jail opened last year, programs for First Nations were said to be a top priority.

Most inmates in the Yukon jail are Aboriginal and today the facility does have services in place.

One inmate facing trial, however, has launched a human rights complaint against the jail alleging he has no access to Aboriginal programming.

APTN National News reporter Shirley McLean has this story.
