The proposed Kiggavik Project footprint aligned with areas designated for the encouragement of sustainable economic development in previous land use plan drafts and changes to existing rights and land use designations, with associated prohibited land uses, are of interest to AREVA.

6. Paula Kigjugalik Hughson
P.O. Box 406
Baker Lake, NU X0C 0A0
Summary of Interests: The reason I wish to participate is to understand and learn why the Draft Nunavut Land Use Plan (DNLUP) Chapter 5.2 Mineral Potential page 50 does not include Term 3.5 and Term 3.6 of the Keewatin Land Use Plan. I believe after participating in the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) process for the Final Hearing for the Kiggavik Project that the region and territory is not aware at all of the motions that have been put in place where the Nunavut Planning Commission (NPC) believes that the terms suffice but the people are supposed to be informed and be approved by the people of the region, I believe this is not the case.
Since participating in the NIRB final hearing I helped a former councillor of the Hamlet of Baker Lake put a petition for a plebiscite for the community (May 2015) to have a chance to vote yes or no to this issue. At the end of May 2015 the hamlet council did have a meeting and a councillor told me informally that the council wanted to go ahead but have yet to see this plebiscite to go ahead for the community. In the fall I emailed the hamlet and later found out it was going to the lawyers and still have to hear what is going on. This councillor did not put their name forward for the December 2015 elections. I have not heard from the council regarding this and have emailed for updates but nothing yet. I believe this community has a right to say yes or no to this issue and the last time this community said yes or no to this issue was in 1990 - 26 years ago!
Nature and Scope: I would like to make an oral presentation when the final hearing is to commence.
