Iqaluit-Niaqunnguu MLA Pat Angnakak shares a smile with a visitor at the Nunavut Legislative Assembly last week. Angnakak has been asking cabinet members in the legislature for progress reports on a couple of bodies she wants to see established: a board of management for the Qikiqtani General Hospital and a public service commission, an independent body that manages government human resources and which MLAs voted for unanimously during the spring sitting. Now into their third week of the fall sitting, Nunavut MLAs and ministers have sparred over a range of issues from family service interventions to caribou quotas and Inuit language rights.
