A legend is gone. I am so sorry to hear the news of Bart Jack Sr.’s passing. A leader and a brilliant mind is no longer with us. There are so many times that I saw him take on government bureaucrats and industry in meetings in Labrador and (without getting personal) he’d tear them to shreds when he felt that what they were proposing was not in the interests of his people. I remember one time he was arguing with government and industry about the protection of an essential resource- the caribou – and how an industry proposal could negatively affect its well being. He said the loss of caribou would devastate his people and that his people had no real interest in being forced to have to live on your store-bought weiners. I think that left an impact on those people attending the meeting. He had a masterful way with words and when he spoke, people listened. His loss is huge for the Innu and for all of Labrador and the province. May Mr. Jack Rest in Peace. – William Flowers on facebook
