Biwaase'aa out of funding

Earlier today, it was announced that the Biwaase'aa program will close its doors at the end of this school year because of government funding cuts.

The program serves about 500 kids in Thunder Bay at seven elementary schools. It provides students with snacks, lunches, and educational, emotional, recreational and cultural programs.

Paul Francis is the program manager. Carlene Spence and Richard Jourdain's four kids have all taken part in the program.

Here they are speaking with the CBC's Jeff Walters.
