Update to the post below. I found an old one of the LIA office circa 1978.

That is the LIA in the middle of the picture, the CBC tower to left and the Labrador Services Division store, now Big Land, to the right.
The white looking thing coming out of the old dame was the towns water supply, to those with with hook up that is.

I was looking for some old photos of the first LIA building in Nain; this is the only one I have come across so far.
I am not sure if it was taken in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s, none the less it was an old construction bunk house converted into offices.

Here is the third president of LIA in her cramped cold drafty office circa 1982.

One more thing on the opening of the NG office, and it stuck out like the proverbial ‘dogs balls’.

No translation into the other unmentionable language.

This present regime seems gung ho on eliminating the other language INUKTUT. That fly’s in the face of one of the platforms the president ran on.

It would have been a simple thing to ask someone fluent in both languages to be the MC and to provide translation of the non uni-lingual speakers.

It takes more time but who is in a hurry to go anywhere.

To many it is about respect, something these politicos seem to forget, forget that is until election time.
