In Ungava, Quebec's largest electoral district, housing is the big issue facing candidates in the provincial election campaign.

Ungava comprises the Inuit communities of Nunavik and the James Bay Cree communities of Eeyou Istchee.

"That is one thing I would like to hear more about," says Hilda Snowball, mayor of Kangiqsualujuaq.

Ungava's current MNA agrees. The Parti Quebecois' Luc Ferland wants to put infrastructure development at the top of the agenda for Quebec's north.

He says it's unacceptable that in this day and age the people of Nunavik have to pay such high costs for goods.

Liberal challenger Jean Boucher is vowing to fight Nunavik's growing rent prices. 

Michael Cameron is running for the Coalition Avenir Québec, and André Richer is running for the Québec Solidaire party. 

The Quebec provincial election is slated for April 7.
