The Ottawa Citizen (Published: Sunday, August 19, 2007)
Re: A model deal for Nunavik, Aug. 15. I am very pleased with this deal that makes the Inuit of Quebec masters in their own house. I would point out that a land claims deal was signed by the Inuit of Labrador with the federal and provincial governments two years ago. The creation of the territory of Nunatsiavut is an agreement much closer in composition to that of Nunavik than that of the Nisga.
