Next week’s meeting of the Kativik Regional Government council is being shortened to a one-day affair that will “deal with urgent matters only” over videoconference, says spokesperson Rhéal Séguin.

Non-urgent business will be dealt with in February, after five Nunavik communities are able to hold municipal elections that were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Elections for the chair and executive committee will then be held when all newly appointed councillors will be present,” Séguin said in an email.

The KRG’s regional council is made up of elected municipal officials from each of Nunavik’s 14 communities, who are appointed by their respective councils.

The upcoming meeting was originally scheduled from Nov. 22 to 25, but public health restrictions prompted the council to delay it. The meeting is set to take place on Zoom.

    Maybe the top dogs priorities should be to go to work on a regular basis. Not use covid as an excuse to sit at home and collect the huge salary to do nothing.

      I heard of vaccinated elders in akulivik who lived with people that had covid within their household tested negative all the way through quarantine. If only people got vaccinated, we wouldn’t have to worry that bad about covid.

      Then again.. if management hired people who actually want to work and are responsible, covid or not, we would have people who are working, rain or shine. Instead they hire “semi-functional alcoholic buddies.” Let’s be honest, this went on before covid.
