Opposition leader backs Nunavik plans

KUUJJUAQ - Mario Dumont, the leader of Action Démocratique du Québec, says he supports the creation of the new regional government and a separate provincial riding for Nunavik.

Dumont's backing is important because he's leader of the second-largest party in Quebec's national assembly.

The ADQ vote guarantees the final self-government agreement and any amendments to the Quebec electoral act will make it through the national assembly despite Premier Jean Charest's minority position in the current government.
