Secretive plans to store nuclear waste in Labrador

The Nunatsiavut Government is not aware of any proposed plans to dispose nuclear waste in Labrador,  and was surprised to learn of it through the media. The Constitutionally-protected Labrador Inuit Land  Claims Agreement clearly defines Inuit rights and titles within Nunatsiavut. Under the agreement, the  provincial and federal governments have a legal duty to consult with the Nunatsiavut Government. At  this point, the Nunatsiavut Government is still gathering information, and will be following up with both  the Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador before making any  further statements.
