New blood

More on this later, as I'm off to officiate at the at the arena for the semi-finals between Saskatchewan and Ontario (Ontario won a play-down with Nova Scotia this afternoon)... but Eva Aariak is the new premier of Nunavut. And judging by the excitement going around the arena as I was leaving and at the post office, people seem awfully happy about it.

As I said, more later. But I'm absolutely not surprised by the choice. And congratulations. A lot of people were disappointed only one woman was elected as an MLA in the last election. Well, the two most politically powerful people in Nunavut are women. Which is pretty cool, really.
