Crees keep close eye on Nunavik gov't plans

As we know the Cree Nation Governance Working Group has been touring the communities to talk about how to set up a new governing structure for the Crees of Eeyou Istchee. The Inuit of Nunavik are going through a similar process, but they're a few steps ahead of the Crees.
