‘Women and families live in constant fear’: Community of Rapid Lake has a policing problem



Tom Fennario

A social worker in the Quebec community of Rapid Lake says women and families live in constant fear because of a lack of policing.

Located within the territory of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, Rapid Lake is plagued by social issues and is facing a crisis.

The isolated community located four hours north of Montreal is struggling to get the police services it needs.

    Seriously, when we call for police assistant it takes them 2+ hours to get to Rapid-Lake.

    It’s a shame but I have a feeling it has a lot to do with complaining about them all the time. They are just not in a hurry to show up.
