Minister Pottle & Premier Williams Accompanies Innu Nation in Ottawa

The Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Patty Pottle has been busy with different meetings in the last little while.

She was recently in Ottawa with Premier Danny Williams, while the Innu Nation met with the Federal Governments Minister of Indian Affairs.

On November 17th, she was also in St John’s to meet with AngajukK√Ęks and Recreation Directors from across Nunatsiavut.

  1. Patti came to my door last election with the promise that she would pressure the Gov't to build a new airport for Nain and also push for power lines from lower churchill to be run up the Coast, and improve the shipping services, none of which has been done. All she has done is tow the party line and do whatever Danny says and in doing so betrayed her Riding and her people.

  2. She did nothing and said nothing publically for Labrador's Aboriginal people!

  3. Wow, Patty said that about power lines to the coast?
    In the interview she said that lines to the coast were not feasible economically, and that the only way they would fly would be if VB went underground maybe making it cheaper to run the lines this way.
    She also mentioned alternative energy "being worked on" by NALCOT in the form of small Hydro projects. But these small projects are all on the south coast, so why no mention of wind power?

  4. Do anyone know of ANYTHING that Minister Pottle has done for this district? I don't....hopefully she will realize that running for another term is out of the question and it's time for someone to take over and do the job that she has failed so horribly to do herself. When the announcement was made at the Hotel North II last week about the Lower Churchill, Minister Pottle stood in the shadows so that she wouldn't have to answer questions while Danny Williams and "The Ghost Minister" - John Hickey stood front and center!! The Minister of Aboriginal Affairs should be now referred to as "The Ghost Minister II" The Provincial Government is referring any questions from the media and the public to Minister/Premier Dunderdale....is she now taking over the Aboriginal Affairs portfolio as well? Time for Pottle to step up or better yet STEP DOWN because she is obviously only in office to collect a pension!!

  6. What ever happened to the "Alcohol and Drug Committee" that was formed a few years ago? Havent heard anything from them. Max Blake was throwed out for his behaviour and I think we should be able to to the same with the AngujukKaks who are on the booze too. It's shamefull to see them drunk around town.
    Thank you,

  7. The poor woman is overshadowed and muted by John Hickey and Danny Williams. Now's her time to shine. Give her a chance.
