Nunatukavut hope federal election will breath new life into their land claims

APTN National News
The southern Inuit in Labrador hope Monday’s election brings a fresh start for their land claim.

It’s been a 25-year fight for the Nunatukavut.

And after all these years, Canada still doesn’t recognize their claim or Aboriginal rights.

As APTN’s Trina Roache reports, commitments from the federal candidates could be a turning point.
