    This is a sad day for the Innu Nation... Peter you are a respected leader who has moved mountains to raise awareness of issues that have impacted the Innu people of Labrador... you will certainly be missed, and I look forward to the day that you once again are in a leadership role to further advocate and lobby for a healthy and prosperous future for your people and nation... I believe that your resignation will set back the tremendous advances that the Innu have made under your guidance and leadership... I wish you well.
