  • Inuit Views Presented at the Economist's Canada Summit

    uumunga: Cara Di Staulo

    channel: News

    Duane Smith of the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) was invited by The Economist to present the views of Inuit at its premier Canadian event held here today, called The Canada Summit: Confronting the Big Questions.

    The event’s main panellists and speakers included Alberta’s Premier Jim Prentice and Bank of Canada Governor Stephen F. Poloz, as well as many bankers, economists, and chief executives who addressed issues such as global banking, energy, and investing in ideas.

    Mr. Smith was joined on a panel called “Canada and the Arctic Council” by former Toronto mayor and current CEO of WWF Canada, David Miller, and Tony Guthrie, Chief executive of De Beers Canada.

    Speaking as both ICC Canada President, and Vice Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council, Mr. Smith shared Inuit insights based on questions posed by moderator and Canada correspondent for The Economist, Madelaine Drohan. In contrast to Mr. Guthrie’s position that the Arctic was the “last global frontier”, Mr. Smith suggested that the Arctic was better described as a vibrant place full of life and, most notably, “a place where Inuit live in an area covering 40% of Canada’s land mass”.

    Both Mr. Smith and David Miller said that De Beers now exemplified many characteristics of a good corporate citizen in the Arctic but “they had to learn the hard way”, added the ICC Canada president.

    In response to a call for tougher rules for Arctic development by the WWF Canada head, and a call for fewer rules by the De Beers CEO, Duane Smith emphasized the importance of strictly following existing rules and constitutional arrangements that already exist. “We need to make sure the rules are not watered down, as some resource companies are asking for, but more importantly we need to make sure the existing arrangements, such as co-management are maintained and strengthened”, he added.

    David Miller praised Canada for having the foresight in 1996, when the Arctic Council was founded, to agree to having international indigenous peoples organizations play a direct and meaningful role alongside states in the Arctic Council, of which ICC is one of six.

    In response to a question on Arctic sovereignty, the ICC Canada President reminded the audience that sovereignty for Inuit included dimensions well beyond the buying of icebreakers, such as food security and social well-being.

    Mr. Smith said he saw the need back in 2011 for Inuit leaders from Greenland, Alaska, Russia, and Canada to forge a collective path on these matters and organized an Inuit Leaders’ Summit on resource development. He concluded by inviting those who want to understand “our own Inuit rules regarding development” to consult the ensuing 2011 A Circumpolar Declaration on Resource Development Principles in Inuit Nunaat, where “it is clear we want development partnerships, but on our terms and at the right pace”.

  • Baffinland aims for year-round shipping from Milne Inlet

    uumunga: Cara Di Staulo

    channel: News

    A proposal by Baffinland Iron Mines to ship iron ore through Milne Inlet 10 months of the year is drawing surprise and anger in Nunavut.

    “People are shocked,” Pond Inlet hunter Caleb Sanguya told the CBC in Inuktitut. “I know the majority will reject the proposal.”

    Ryan Barry, the executive director of the Nunavut Impact Review Board, says he was taken aback.

    “Our boards were not expecting it when they did the last assessment with the early revenue phase, so I would fully understand if there is public concern about this proposal, or the way it is being proposed or treated."

    Baffinland, which began operations at its Mary River site on north Baffin Island this summer, had originally planned to move iron ore using a railway to Steensby Inlet on the island’s south coast, then by ship through the Foxe Basin and Hudson Strait.

    Days after receiving approval for the controversial project, the company changed its tune, opting for a “phased” approach that would see smaller amounts of ore being moved by road northeast to Milne Inlet for shipment to Europe through the summer months only.

    In its new proposal, the company says it wants to take advantage of its existing infrastructure, by tripling the amount of ore currently being shipped through Milne Inlet, from 4.2 million tonnes to about 12 million tonnes per year.

    That would mean ships moving through the area from June until March, breaking up the sea ice to keep waters open in Eclipse Sound near Pond Inlet and into Baffin Bay. It would also mean more traffic on the current tote road from the mine site to the port, and a new dock.

    Baffinland opted for the phased approach when it was unable to find the $5 billion in capital required for its approved project.

    The company hopes to being shipping ore in the winter months starting in 2017.

    But the Nunavut Impact Review Board says it will take the time it needs to assess the new proposal.
