Seeking Quassa’s successor


IQALUIT — Nunavut’s premiere land-claims organization probably won’t get a new president until this winter.

Paul Quassa, the current head of Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., is stepping down at the end of this month.

A by-election to replace him will probably be called at NTI’s annual general meeting in Pangnirtung in October.

The person picked in that by-election will serve out Quassa’s term, which expires in 2003.

Until the by-election, NTI’s first vice-president, James Eetoolook, will be the acting president of the organization.

NTI will also hold elections this winter for Eetoolook’s job and that of Bernadette Tungilik, the vice-president of finance.

Quassa announced his resignation June 26, citing a desire to spend more time with his family.
