Natan Obed on Inuit: “We don’t have access to broadband”


Following a meeting of indigenous leaders with Premiers and the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, ITK President Natan Obed appeared on CBC News | Power & Politics with Terry Milewski. Mr. Obed highlighted Inuit issues that he wishes were on the table in discussions with the PM, in particular social equity, health and infrastructure in the Canadian Arctic. His view is that Canada has a long way to go to address such issues: “This country isn’t complete yet.”
