New Dawn passes with a resounding Yes
Joseph Riche, Innu Nation Grand Chief People living in Sheshatshiu and Natuashish were celebrating more than just Canada Day this weekend. The New Dawn agreement was officially accepted Friday morning at 1 AM with an overwhelming 90 per cent of the vote. Grand Chief Joseph Riche didn’t expect such a major voter turnout, and feels it was the younger population that brought in the big numbers. Our Colleen Connors met with Joseph Riche to talk about the vote and what’s next for the Innu.
