Last week, the Nunatsiavut Government and the Provincial Government met for the very first time.
Jim Lyall is the President of the Nunatsiavut Government.
He says he was invited by Premier Danny Williams shortly after he was elected as President.
Lyall says there were many reasons why they couldn’t meet prior to last week.
He says sometimes his people were not ready or weren’t there and vice-versa with the provincial government.
Lyall says in the meeting there were quite a number of issues brought to the table from both governments.
They include: mineral lands, uranium mining, Lower Churchill, health care, climate change, oil storage tank regulations and more.
