Nunatsiavut - Worried Muskrat Falls may contaminate food supply downstream

Labrador Inuit are worried that Muskrat Falls could contaminate their food supply downstream. Nunatsiavut President Sarah Leo spoke at a press conference yesterday, saying mercury levels in Lake Melville will likely go up if the project goes ahead. Mercury can find its way into fish, seals, and other country foods enjoyed by the Inuit on a daily basis. Leo says Nalcor has not directly contacted Nunatsiavut to talk about these concerns. She joins us on the line this morning from St. John's.
