      "At long last, Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) has launched its training
      program in northern Ontario aiming to increase the presence of Indigenous
      voices in Canadian media.
      �Our hope is to train stringers who can report from their northern Ontario
      communities where currently mainstream media doesn�t have local
      correspondents,� said Rachel Pulfer, executive director of JHR. �They will
      be able to add the context that a reporter who is just flying in for a
      couple of days won�t have � ultimately it�s about giving ownership on their
      stories to the communities that live there.�
      As reported by the Canadian Journalism Project, JHR will send two trainers
      to a total of six remote communities over the course of nine months to
      train anyone interested in relaying local news to a wider Canadian
      audience. Fort Severn, Weagomow, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug,
      Attawapiskat, Moose Cree and Constance Lake have agreed to take part in the
      project."
