Urban Natives promote development plan

Urban Native groups in Winnipeg, Manitoba released a development plan aimed at rejuvenating a neighborhood with a large Native population.

The groups are targeting Selkirk Avenue in Winnipeg's North End. The area has been plagued by violence and crime. Poverty and unemployment rates are high.

To change the situation, the plan calls for improved safety measures, better housing and support for small businesses. Several Native organizations are located on Selkirk and others plan to move there.
