Tony Andersen continued...

One of the continuing issues the Nunatsiavut Government works on and enforces is the Land Use Plan.

Yesterday, First Minister Tony Andersen explained what is happening with that.

He says this Land Use Plan is a Federal and Provincial guideline that handles how any business uses the protected lands.

And the Nunatsiavut Government does the same on their Labrador Inuit Lands.

Andersen says this is why they’ve placed a moratorium on uranium mining and exploration.

After the end of March 2011, the moratorium is lifted.

But the Nunatsiavut Government still has the right to oversee anything and everything before any mining can start.

This afternoon Andersen briefly explains what the Land Use Plan is.
