Edmunds, who is of Inuit descent and was born in North West River, was first elected in 2011. His district is the largest of the provincial electoral districts covering roughly 28% of the province's area. However, this district contains only 6 communities, none of which are reachable by road and the total population is below 4,000 (as of 2011). The district includes the Inuit self-governing territory known as Nunatsiavut, as well as the Naskapi community of Natuashish. Edmunds was re-elected in 2015 but with only around 700 votes. His district had the lowest turnout in the province (less than 40% of eligible voters voted).

Lower Churchill Project

Studies regarding the environmental effects of the Lower Churchill Project have been released by Nunatsiavut and Nalcor Energy which have given conflicting results. As Nunatsiavut's MHA, Edmunds has not decided which study he should listen to however he is likely to side with Nalcor like his party's caucus.
