President Aluki Kotierk, Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett and Nunavut Premier Joe Savikataaq celebrate the signing of an agreement in principle for a Nunavut devolution agreement on Thursday, Aug. 15. The agreement in principle will act as a negotiation guide for a final devolution agreement, which will see responsibilities over Nunavut’s Crown lands and natural resources transferred from the federal government to the territory. The final agreement is expected within five years. See our story later at Nunatsiaq.com. (Photo by Kahlan Miron)
