    Perhaps if we tie-in the housing crisis in Nunavut to a current war in Europe, JT and his gang might be able to act on this Nunavut emergency….To date, Canadians are moved into back burner, it’s getting bad to be administered by Liberals today. Has anyone else see a very long line-up for Food Bank allocations in Toronto? We were proud Canadians once.

    With widespread failures in local housing, health, education, increasing food security and growing infrastructure deficits, talk of devolution only serves to distract Nunavummiut.

    The GN must call the auditor general to audit and review the executive department’s consulting and communications budgets.

    White southern consultants are getting rich from Nunavut’s dysfunctional government and local poverty.

    The premier looks like a junior mid-range association director engaging in mediocre lobbying tactics instead of the premier of a territorial government competently directing and engaging in intergovernmental relations.

    The premier and his cabinet have been reduced to conventional “lobby days” because Nunavut’s proper intergovernmental relations are failing in Justin Trudeau’s Ottawa.

    Nunavummiut deserve much better, and the land claim agreement promised much more.

    PJ sure it’s a photo op but, at least he is trying to advance Nunavuts agenda, and the PM has to try and listen, baby steps keep up the the slow and steady, the PM may throw us something better than nothing
