1 April 1999
“I’ve got a right to see the Blues”

I don’t know why the official Nunavut Hansard for the historic first session is unavailable in Inuktitut. Maybe it was taken down for needed repairs and never put back. Anyway, it seems a shame. To say the least.


The text of Bill 1, the Flag of Nunavut Act, is not included in the Hansard. It was introduced on the previous day, 31 March 1999, at the final seating of the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories in their pre-Nunavut form. It reads in full:

Flag of Nunavut
1. The flag of Nunavut, as most graciously granted by His Excellency the Governor General of Canada, the Right Honourable Roméo LeBlanc, in his warrant of March 31, 1999, is hereby confirmed as the flag of Nunavut.

The Act does not contain within itself a description of the Flag.


Formalities: This text is based on the Blues or unofficial version. Apparent misspellings have been corrected, with additions and deletions clearly marked. Text that was added in the final Hansard (English only) is shown in dark blue. Item numbers in the Table of Contents were used only in the “Blues”, but have been retained here to agree with the body text. Page numbers (only visible on tablets and larger monitors) are from the final English version.

The Inuktitut text was originally in Roman transliteration. It has been auto-converted to syllabics, so the readings should be identical. Trouble spots are marked in the text where they occur. Inconsis­tencies in the use of “interpretation” (ᑐᓵᔨᑯᑦ, tusaajikut), especially when applied to the same speaker, are unchanged. Spelling of names has not been regularized, but clear errors are corrected and marked.

In English, inconsistent use of “Ms.” or “Mrs.” (Manitok) Thompson is unchanged. The Commissioner’s full name, Helen Mamayaok Maksagak, is never given.


This is a free-standing file. No illustrations, no external stylesheets, no fancy business. What you see is what there is.

The wall hangings that you see were made by the Quqshuun Ilihakvik Centre in Gjoa Haven; the Tusanik School in Repulse Bay and the Inuujaq School in Arctic Bay.
On behalf of the Legislative Assembly and the Government of Nunavut, I would like to express our deep appreciation for the beautiful painting that you see in front of the stage.
It was presented last evening by the Honourable Jonathan Motzfeldt, Premier of Greenland, to the Honourable Paul Okalik.
I am also pleased to tell you that the chair in which the bearer of our mace, Mr. Simon Nattaq, sits today was most generously donated to us by the Speaker of the Upper House of the Parliament of Canada.
