There was a packed house Wednesday in Nain to see Johannes Lampe take his oath to officially become president of the Nunatsiavut government.

“My fellow Labrador Inuit, it is a great honour to stand before you as your new president,” Lampe told the crowd.

Lampe pledged to work on building relationships between the federal and provincial governments and the Nunatsiavut people, “to better understand the needs of the Labrador Inuit.”

“The three parties [to] the Inuit Land Claim Agreement have an obligation to make the Labrador Inuit Land Claim Agreement work,” he said.

Lampe said the main issues for Nunatsiavut are housing, poverty, mental health and suicide.
