Nunavut community hopes to legislate drunkards

APTN National News
Many communities in Nunavut prohibit alcohol but still have major problems with public intoxication.

The hamlet of Pangnirtung wants to introduce a public nuisance bylaw they hope will keep booze off the streets.

If approved, people found drunk in public would be fined as much as $1,000.

The bylaw will be introduced this week.
