There are Inuit who support Baffinland Iron Mines Corp.’s proposed mine expansion, but they might not say so out loud, says a former Pond Inlet hamlet councillor.
Joanna Innualuk-Kunnuk said people have always been wary of supporting the mine publicly.
“Most of the people who support phase two won’t say anything,” Innualuk-Kunnuk said in an interview.
