New government pact one step closer

QUEBEC CITY – Nunavik moved a step closer to a new regional public government on Dec. 5, when Pita Aatami, president of Makivik Corp., signed an agreement-in-principle with Quebec's native affairs minister, Benoit Pelletier, and Chuck Strahl, the federal minister of Indian affairs, in the Salon Rouge of Quebec's National Assembly.

Is this going to be another tax? I mean the name of government is tax so are we to govern third party government? 6.5% Fed, 7% Prov and what will be the Nuanvik tax? or are we finally realizing the tax after the reveal of Inuit as they were here before tax? like we said we didn't know how tax was! NON-NOT KNOWING THE TAX.
