By Emily Blake THE CANADIAN PRESS Tanya Tungilik says she wants to meet face to face with the former French Oblate priest her late father alleged sexually abused him as a child. She is to join a delegation of Inuit people planning to travel from Nunavut to Paris and Lyon, France, next week to seek the extradition of Father Johannes Rivoire to Canada. The trip, led by Nunavut Tunnagavik Inc., a group representing Nunavut Inuit, is to also include Tungilik’s brother Jesse and Steve Mapsalak, who has also accused Rivoire of abuse. Tungilik says her father, Marius Tungilik, who died in 2012, alleged he was sexually abused by Rivoire when he was 13 years old while working at the Co-op store in Naujaat, Nvt. Those accusations have never been heard
