Do we really need all these monuments??? Resettlement made sense years ago. Many communities were isolated with no services and they should not expect govt to build a road to a community of 20 people. Now they are spending thousands for a monument and thousands for the ceremony in a place that nobody will see it. 20 years ago I fell on George St and cut my knee but I don't see a monument. When you have to boil water or the RNC don't have enough staff to catch the bad guys, I have to wonder how govt spends it money.

KR if you fell on George street 20 years ago then you must of had a good life while growing up and must be from Newfoundland, and probabaly wasnt forced to relocate out of your home in your lifetime, i been to quit a few places in newfoundland and there is paved roads to communities that has less people living there than some communities here in labrador, it always was and always will be about the island part of this province and labrador is used for its natural resources to keep the newfouldland afloat, labrador is the reason newfoundland has what it got

Not to diminish the suffering of the Inuit....but what about the forced relocation (resettlement) of everyone else in the 50's? Resettlement was the order of the day.

the government was bent on resettlement during the 50's and 60's, not only the innu were forced to resettle,. communities, villages and small towns all along the coast of Newfoundland Labrador were forced to resettlement. many faced very hard and difficult times. wether resettlement was good or bad is a matter of openion and who you speak too. too bad the final chapter on Government resettlement of the 50's and 60's was never written

The story's about the Inuit, not Innu, and there is no such thing as "Newfoundland Labrador".
