It has been a busy 6 months since my last newsletter!
I hosted a Defence Roundtable in Iqaluit on July 20 and made a submission to Minister Sajjan’s Defence Policy Review. There were many opportunities to ask questions of Ministers and the Government Representative in the Senate about issues that are important to Nunavummiut. The Standing Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples completed its study on the state of housing in Inuit Nunangat and is set to release its report in early 2017.
I have also had the opportunity to meet many wonderful, smart and talented young Inuit who have excelled in community service, academics, sports, and the arts and I feel privileged to be able to support them and recognize them in the Senate.
My newsletters are about the people I meet, the issues that I believe matter in Nunavut, and the work that I do in the Senate in an effort to help Nunavummiut.
