Adam Nattar, youth MLA for Rankin Inlet North–Chesterfield Inlet, speaks as minister of community and government services at the Fifth Nunavut Youth Parliament, as his fellow Nunavut government cabinet colleagues wait their turn to address the Legislative Assembly in Iqaluit. Nunavut Premier — the real one — Peter Taptuna, listens in, rear to the left, with ministers Johnny Mike and Jeannie Ugyuk. “It is often said that youth are the leaders of tomorrow,” legislative assembly speaker George Qulaut told the 22 students from throughout Nunavut, who took part in the afternoon-long session, Nov 27. “I believe you are also the leaders of today, and as with all leaders, you have a number of challenges to overcome and responsibilities to fulfill.” (PHOTO BY PETER VARGA)
