Nunavut NDP MP Mumilaaq Qaqqaq returns from medical leave

Qaqqaq clarified in a video Monday that she has been off work since October 23, 2020 “due to extreme burnout, depression, and anxiety.”

She said witnessing “so much turmoil and lack of justice” during a three-week housing tour that took her across Nunavut in August left her “heart hurting” and “soul heavy.” 

“I couldn’t begin to fathom how many Inuit were clearly struggling, so obviously struggling and it seemed like the rest of the country was relatively OK with this — including the prime minister.” 

Her full video message is included in the article below and is worth watching.
