Northern Strategy Map Omits Northern Communities

Canada's Northern Strategy (thumbnail) A map illustrating the Canadian government’s northern strategy is drawing fire for leaving out Inuit communities in northern Quebec and Labrador, the Vancouver Sun reports: “while dozens of communities are identified in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, the map does not pinpoint any of the 20 Inuit towns and villages in northern Quebec and Labrador.” The president of the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami raised a fuss, and the government is promising to correct the map. The Sun cites the fact that the federal government has special authority over the territories that it lacks over northern regions of the provinces as one reason for the map being the way it is.
