WINNIPEG. x-09s. A 24-hour safe space for youth in Winnipeg has been dedicated to the memory of a 15-year-old Indigenous girl whose body was found in the Red River. Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott has announced 340-thousand dollars in funding to expand the program at the Ndinawe (en-DIHN'-ah-way) Youth Resource Centre. Tina Fontaine stayed in the shelter in the summer of 2014 before she disappeared. Her great aunt, Thelma Favel (FAY'-vuhl), says the family worked with local organizations and the federal government to get the funding in her honour.
