The right to harvest caribou contemplated in the first paragraph may be exercised south of the 56°15′ parallel only
(a)  while travelling between an Inuit community and Schefferville; or
(b)  if the quota of caribou allocated to the Inuit based on the species in the whole territory cannot be reached by reason of the rarity of that species in the areas contemplated in sections 12, 13 and 13.1 and in the areas contemplated in this section north of the 56°15′ parallel, and if the majority of the members of the Coordinating Committee having the right to vote have given their authorization and specified the duration of that authorization.
