Are aboriginal workers in Labrador getting Muskrat jobs?

This week, people in Natuashish are getting a head's up about working at Muskrat Falls. Nalcor's Innu employment and training team is letting them know about opportunities available, and encouraging those who qualify to register on a Muskrat Falls job data base. A lot of aboriginal people have already been trained for jobs, according to the Labrador Aboriginal Training Partnership. But Keith Jacque says the low number of aboriginal people working at the construction site is concerning. He is the Executive Director of the training partnership. Labrador Morning's John Gaudi first asked Keith Jacque how many aboriginal workers are all ready to work.
