A little context

As a public service — since no one seems to have done this yet — the Labrador cartography division presents the following map showing the Joir River (highlighted in bright green), a tributary of the Mecatina, relative to the surrounding hydrography, road networks, and the closest Innu communities in Labrador and the North Shore.

Ekuanitshit is the Innu-eimun name for Mingan. Unamen-shipi is the Innu name for La Romaine. Pakuashipi is on the St. Augustine River across from the town of the same name. Similarly, Natashquan the Innu reserve is separated by a short road and a small brook from Natashquan the non-Innu village.

Translation of the above comment:

Whatever Williams has done in the past, is doing in the present, or will do in the future is completely and utterly perfect and right and bold and brilliant [the comment breaks off here...]

WJM: Is there any truth to the rumour that these hunters passed through a much larger herd to access the Joir River herd?

The largest herds are measured quarterly by CRA.

Trying to be funny, Mark?

Winston: sorry, deleted that Chinese spam.

Steve: Mark tried and succeeded.

Steve again: No. The Minister of Caribou is poorly informed.

Spam? What spam? It thought for sure it was Gomphus clavatus Wisemanius.

I thought for a couple days you could be civilized. I was wrong. A leopard can't change its spots. Neither can a braying jackass.

Bye, Steve.

OK then.

Bye, Steve.
