Canada Makes Its Largest Land Transfer In History

The government of Canada made its largest land transfer in history on Thursday when it officially signed over the massive Arctic territory of Nunavut to its own government, who will now have control over the 808,200 square miles of sparsely populated mountains, tundra and vast mineral reserves. The Nunavut Lands and Resources Devolution Agreement signed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier of Nunavut P.J. Akeeagok, President of Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated Aluki Kotierk and the Minister of Northern Affairs Dan Vandal means the territory will have the right to royalties from any exploration and development that would have otherwise gone to the Canadian government, said a press release from Trudeau and Reuters. https://www.ecowatch.com/canada-arctic-nunavut-land-transfer.html

      This is clear indication that we can only limit ourselves from exploring all avenues available towards climate change

                    This is an important milestone in Canada's history, as it recognizes the rights and autonomy of the Indigenous Inuit people who call the region home.
