"Today, there are no more narwhal pods. We have lost over 12,000 narwhal in the last two years, mainly due to changes in their traditional summer habitats."

Gearing up for back to school CAMBRIDGE BAY Tea Talk with Navalik Tologanak email: helent@qiniq.com

Hello from Cambridge Bay. The summer is flying by very fast. Everyone is busy and the weather is different this year. Everyone is happy to see the ice gone from around the island and the travelling area. Although the ice was late to go this year, people were still able to go boating, hunting and camping on the mainland, and go to their homelands. A few families were successful hunting caribou, which are scarce nowadays in our area. We are so happy to be able to still eat caribou, but can't as much as we did long ago. Fish are still plentiful in our area. Cambridge Bay is known to be a fishing village and the Inuit here grew up on fish. Harvesting fish is a way of life. Fish is a healthy diet for everyone. We are so lucky in Cambridge Bay to be able to harvest fish, mainly Arctic char. Many of our elders and residents are busy harvesting fish, making dry-fish and stocking up for the winter. So if you're in Cambridge Bay, come and have some fresh Arctic char. Now that August is here, we all know that school will reopen again and summer holidays will finish for our school children. The first day back to school is Friday, Aug. 17 at 8:45 a.m.

Parents, grandparents and residents of Cambridge Bay always look forward to see who's starting kindergarten. We also have a preschool program here which is run by the Wellness Centre. Final planning for pre-school is still being finalized by staff at the wellness centre. Stay tuned for start dates. Pre-school will be held at the youth centre. Meanwhile application forms can still be picked up from the front desk at the wellness centre. We hope that all our children had a great, fun and safe summer. Good luck for another school year! And welcome back to our teachers and principals. Summer in Cambridge Bay has been extremely busy with construction. We have a new subdivision coming up already and they've already built new roads. They've started with new housing and apartments, which is badly needed in Cambridge Bay. Slowly, we can overcome the shortage of housing and the overcrowding with the support of each other and our leaders to build a healthy community. Cambridge Bay has grown tremendously. We have many new families coming for Arctic College and the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS). We welcome all new families moving to Cambridge Bay. Have a great year, and welcome to Cambridge Bay once again. CHARS and Polar Knowledge Canada have had many scientists, researchers and biologists coming in to do their summer work, both on land and in the water. We hope everyone had a safe and successful summer. We look forward to the grand opening of CHARS.

From left: Peter Van Buren, Linda Rotermundt, Brian Boudreau, Mike Dempsey, Adrian Schimnowski, Eric Schimnowski, Clyde Bursey, Yves Bernard, Daniel McIsaac and Kristina Brown. The Arctic Research Foundation and their crew have been busy already, sailing on the Arctic Ocean, doing their research work and studies. We wish everyone another successful summer of work. Be safe! It is important that the residents of Cambridge Bay and area know

what everyone is doing on the ocean and on the land. Keep the elders informed of what's going on on their land. Quana for involving the residents and elders of Nunavut while you do the important work of the foundation. God be with you son.

L had been at Qimaavik since July of 2017. Early in 2018, her children were apprehended, not for the first time. She struggles with alcohol. There was violence in her upbringing. Her younger sister, as well as cousins, died by suicide. "I thought we were just normal," said L. Her sobriety was fragile when she spoke with Nunavut News but, she said, with some counseling she started to understand herself, started to heal. "I was doing very good last year when I got here. I completely quit everything. I'm drinking here and there now," she said. "When I lost my kids I was so mad at everybody. The cycle kept going and going. My kids are growing up and I'm putting myself in their shoes, how scary it used to be, with fighting parents. I don't want to raise my kids that way." Sarah and L's stories, with some variations, are the stories of the many women Rogers and Bishop encounter on a daily basis. "Usually the cry is, 'I just need my own home. I just need a place for myself and my children.' Because it's just so difficult to plan your future if you're in a shelter and this is the last stop," said Rogers. The shelter can be chaotic. "Somebody who has lived intergenerational trauma, plus their lived experience of trauma, it's difficult to not react and learn how to respond, when you're in a shelter with many other women who are surviving abuse," said Bishop. 'Physically and sexually abused' "And many children. The children are child witnesses. They've also been physically and sexually abused, some of them. So you've got a lot of behavioural issues, as well, amongst the children. Mothers are trying to parent their kids in a communal situation," said Rogers. L persisted. She got a job, though working nights and trying to get sleep at the shelter took its toll. "It's so tiring when you're here long enough. I really do need it (second-stage housing). I'm doing night shift at times, and today I got off at seven this morning. I only slept three hours. I do that three times a week," said L. The prospect of not getting onto the Iqaluit Housing Authority waiting list until she's been in the city for two years, then sitting on a list for three to five years, took its toll. Losing her kids again took her to rock bottom, she said. She was allowed three visits a week with her children, at the shelter. "There's so much in here. I don't even want my kids to be here anymore. It's chaos. The other day I had to stop two ladies fighting." Her eyes fill with tears. L left the shelter sometime after speaking with Nunavut News, not for the first time.

"Women come in from an abusive situation. There's a period where they may be in shock. They come to a place where they can grieve, they have their anger, and there's some acceptance. But, then, another woman comes through the door – like what happened a few days ago – and she can't see out of one of her eyes. She's got a cracked arm. What happens is our women who have done some healing are subjected to being re-traumatized," said Bishop. "As we know, when people are in their trauma, and they react rather than respond, life is more difficult. Then they get checks against them in terms of Social Services because they screamed or they yelled or they slammed the door … So it's a rippling effect. And it continues in the house, just continues." Bishop says it's the same with substance use. Some women are at the point where they are dealing with that. 'A volatile environment' "Whether it's harm reduction or total abstinence. Then we have other women who are not there. So they're mixed with the women who are going out drinking and they're not. It's threatening to their sobriety." As Rogers noted, Qimaavik is not a treatment centre, and not a mental health centre. "But our population has all those issues. It can be quite a volatile environment. It doesn't mean it's out of control. Lots of days it's very calm, but there's lots of days where it's just complex," she said. Qimaavik has saved many women's lives, said Sarah. But second-stage housing would save many more. "It's very important to note that those of us who go back into our environment because there's no second-stage housing have lost their lives. This is a reality in Nunavut. Lost their lives, along with their children's. We hear their sad news all the time here in Nunavut. The amount of women who are murdered, it's incredible. And we shake our heads," said Sarah. "Why are we not being heard?" Sarah says there's something wrong with a system that doesn't realize society as a whole would be better off if a full spectrum of services were available for the women of Nunavut. "So that we can prosper, so that we can get back to our excellent selves, to the strong women we are. We are very strong," she said. "If second stage housing could be introduced here I think that would definitely move things forward for us ladies. I believe that if we were given that opportunity, many of us could get back on with our lives, to careers – whether working, or as full-time mothers. "We could have our own spaces, before we actually have our own permanent places."

City business bylaw makes sense Northern News Services

The City of Iqaluit has a new bylaw to manage business licensing in the city, and the new regime is quite promising. The new fee schedule for businesses in the capital makes it easier for businesses to start up, with small (90 to 150 worker hours per week), micro (30 to 90 worker hours per week) and hobbyist (under 30 worker hours per week) businesses seeing a reduction in their annual licensing fee. The previous fee was $250 per year or $300 if paid after the annual deadline. The new fee is as low as $25 per year for a hobbyist business, with small businesses paying $150 per year. It's a benefit for the small players, in other words, most businesses. But making it easier and more affordable for businesses to comply with the bylaw is also good for bigger businesses. Take for example the other interesting element of this regime change is the inclusion of AirBNBs as micro businesses. We know some of our neighbours in the capital are making incomes equivalent to full-time government jobs by renting out their

spare rooms, so it's time for the city to have a means to gather information about how much of the housing market is used for this purpose. It's especially important for AirBNBs to be considered businesses due to the fact Iqaluit has a significant shortage of hotel space at the moment. When construction ends and new hotel rooms open, AirBNBs are a competitor to legitimate businesses. Without city oversight, the hotels could claim unfair treatment but a city without data has a hard time justifying policy decisions. There's no point banning AirBNB when there are not enough hotel rooms, for example. With data – meaning a count of how many AirBNBs operate in Iqaluit, the city can determine whether there are too many operating and threatening hotels and adding an additional burden on the housing crunch. With

a good sense of the situation, council can decide whether AirBNBs are welcome here and how many, and set policy accordingly. We give credit to community economic development officer Gabrielle Morrill, who organized efforts to get business feedback on the bylaw. We are also looking forward to another initiative that will see the publication online of all licensed businesses in the city. The public has the right to know who is playing by the rules, much the same way the city publishes an annual list of who owes back taxes. So this is progress. But looking back on the city's commitments from 2015 – detailed in the community economic development plan available on the city's website – it's only one of 47 the city intended to execute by 2019. That's next year. The city has a lot more to do in a short time to meet the commitments that came from extensive community consultations. These things have a tendency to be overlooked when councils and staff change, so we hope that this success is incentive to look back and make good on the promises made in 2015.

Building a relationship Building a relationship needs to have two or more people to accomplish. In life we seem to want to be accepted first and then we try and maintain and keep that special person close at hand. Whenever two or more people begin this journey of building this friendship, we soon learn that there is a lot of give and take in securing this relationship. Many times there are disagreements that could cause misunderstandings and make the friendship stressful and difficult. If one of the parties involved cannot cope with or deal with the misgivings, they go their separate ways and a part of them leaves when this happens. A void hits hard, there is a time of grieving as it were and then they try again. Maybe they swallow their pride and apologize for acting so

shallow and the journey starts again. Besides this give and take, there are sacrifices made by one or both individuals involved in this friendship. For us guys, we slow down in the sports arena and not go bowling or golfing or to the basketball court every time we are called by a buddy but we try and accommodate our special friend by going to the movies or Walmart or to their favourite restaurant and explain to our buddy I'll be there next time. This to me adds character and self-awareness that I am not the only person on this earth. My feelings and my wishes are not the only ones to tend to but they involve someone else as well. If we do not bend to the selfish attitude there is tension and human nature is such that a cold shoulder is pushed hard on the 'friend' at fault and it takes time and extra effort by both indi-

viduals to work out. Ever been there? Sometimes it is a small matter that has been turned into a molehill, as the saying goes, and it hurts. There really wasn't an intention of breaking down the relationship but I think going through these types of experiences does add strength and resilience and builds a stronger and lasting relationship.

Convicted murderer gets appeal aid NEWS in Brief

Iqaluit Justice Neil Sharkey has ordered that the Attorney General pay for costs associated with an appeal by Jeffrey Salomonie, who was convicted of first-degree murder in 2016. Salomonie, found guilty

in the 2009 death of 33-yearold Daisy Curley in Iqaluit and given a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years, has been denied representation through legal aid. The judge subsequently found an alternative for the

Cape Dorset man, who's approximately 50 years old. "To expect Mr. Salomonie, who is detained in an institution thousands of kilometres away from home, suffers from noticeable hearing loss, and is participating in the appeal

of a first-degree murder conviction in his second language, to concisely and persuasively prosecute an appeal involving the legally complex grounds articulated by counsel is unrealistic," Sharkey wrote in a decision released last week.

"It would not serve the interests of justice to deny Mr. Salomonie's application to have counsel assigned." Salomonie's appeal process has stalled since last November due to the lack of a lawyer. – Derek Neary

Four Baffin youth sail a tall ship Summer camp may lead to marine careers

by Michele LeTourneau Northern News Services

Kingston, Ont.

Thanks to the Ayalik Fund and Tall Ship Expeditions Canada, four Baffin youth are aboard the St. Lawrence II, a 72-foot sail training vessel, this summer. Brandon Anaviapik, 17, and Jeannie Qiyuapik Ootoova, 16, both from Pond Inlet and Kirk-Paul Kunnuk, 15, and Kathi-Lee Arnatsiaq, 15, from Iglulik travelled to southern Ontario to participate in the summer camp aboard the brigantine. Anaviapik and Qiyuapik, who were returning home, crossed paths with Kunnuk and Arnatsiaq, who were on their way south, at the Iqaluit International Airport July 26. Asked whether he enjoyed his time on a tall ship, Anaviapik responded with a powerful "Yes. All of it." He says he learned how to put a sail up and how to steer. "I learned a lot, all about sailing," said Qiyuapik, who was all smiles. She made new friends living and learning on the St. Lawrence II. Kunnuk and Arnatsiaq, meanwhile, were very excited to be on their way. Neither had sailed before. "We only use engines," said Kunnuk. The tall ship partnership is a new one for the fund, established in memory of David and Laurie Pelly's beloved son Eric Ayalik Okalitana Pelly, whom they adopted as a toddler in Cambridge Bay, and is intended to provide what the Pellys hope will be empowering adventures for Nunavut youth. "These four youth represent the Ayalik Fund's expansion into the Baffin region. In total, about 20 young people from across Nunavut – from seven different communities, from all three regions – will enjoy the adventure of a lifetime over the summer. The basic goal is to build self-confidence in young people by providing these potentially life-changing opportunities," said David Pelly. Tall Ship Expeditions Canada is based in Kingston, a city at the eastern end of Lake Ontario where the St. Lawrence River begins. "Brigantine Incorporated (which runs the

expeditions and training programs) was founded back in 1954. It's the oldest continuous sail training program in North America," said president Peter Milley. "Originally it started as a sea cadet boat. Then it became just a traditional sail-training program and we introduced girls. So 50 per cent of our sailors are girls and 50 per cent are boys." Milley says trainees typically begin at the age of 12 or 13, with a five- or 10-day sail with leadership and adventure training. "Those that have an appetite to stay with the program, we bring back, and we have a very formalized Transport Canada approved onboard training program where the kids that stay with us for five years and have an opportunity to graduate with either a 60 ton or 150 ton limited masters ticket," he said, adding a lot of the graduates transition into a marine career such as with the Canadian Coast Guard. As an example, Saimaniq Temela, originally of Kimmirut, completed that five-year training, and went on to sail the Arabian Sea on the 85-metre long tall ship Shabab Oman in 2016 at the age of 17. Sail Train International, an organization made up of all the tall ships in the world, named him sailor of the year in 2017. Milley's interest in training Inuit youth is due to several factors. He has ties to Nunavut, via family and friends, and his eldest son, a naval officer, has sailed in the Arctic as a navigator, as has his daughter-in-law. "They sailed into Pond and they sailed up through there, and he's on a number of military exercises and he said it's really unfortunate that we don't have some program for the kids up North because they should be stewards of their own waters," said Milley. "That really struck a chord with me." As well, Milley's brother is an oceanographer and professor at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, in fisheries management. He's doing the impact studies for the Pangnirtung harbour. "He said it's just a matter of time until these marine career opportunities open up. There's going to be Coast Guard jobs, there's going to be room for Inuit naval officers, and on supply vessels, tour boats – and they should be manag-

So when he and Pelly met, the introduction to marine training for Inuit youth seemed a natural partnership. "We're trying to encourage some of these kids, give them a bit of transitioning to the south if they have to come down here to go to school, and also learn some marine skills,"

said Milley. The youth learn navigation skills, meteorology, they make the masts themselves, and they learn diesel mechanics, among many other skills. The bonus is southern youth get to meet their Northern Canadian neighbours, and learn about their Inuit culture and traditional lifestyle, said Milley.

Northern media pioneer remembered Tributes pour in for Northern News Services founder Jack 'Sig' Sigvaldason, dead at 84 by Avery Zingel

Nunavut

Friends, colleagues and family members are paying tribute to a Northern media giant this week. Jack "Sig" Sigvaldason, founder and president of Northern News Services, died in Ottawa Aug. 9 after a brief illness. He was 84. Sigvaldason began his news company in early 1972 after being fired from News of the North just before Christmas. His first newspaper, Yellowknifer, was born on his kitchen table. "I think it was, in part, out of spite to (the publisher) but also recognizing that the town was ripe for its own newspaper. The weekly News

of the North had a more territorial slant," said Bill Braden, a former MLA and Yellowknifer's first staff photographer. As a journalist, he had a passion for "going after the bureaucracy," said Braden. "Government wasn't a good word, especially for Sig when it came to what government did to the little people. He was a champion of the little guy and the paper would smoulder with cutting editorials," said Braden. Sigvaldason purchased the newspaper that fired him in 1979, renaming it News/ North. A number of newspaper titles followed afterwards: Inuvik Drum, purchased in 1988; Deh Cho Drum, launched in 1994; the

following year came Kivalliq News, published in Inuktitut and English; and Nunavut News in 1998. Printing company Canarctic Graphics was acquired in 1989. Today, Sigvaldason's contributions to Northern news encompass 3.8 million square kilometres of regional coverage, serving 60,000 people in two languages. In 2012, Sigvaldason received a Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) Lifetime Achievement Award on the 40th anniversary of Northern News Services. By that time, he had been in the journalism business for 60 years. Last year, Sigvaldason acquired 100 per cent ownership of Northern News Ser-

vices and Canarctic Graphics after previously sharing ownership with former general manager Mike Scott. Sigvaldason was a "true pioneer" in the industry, said John Hinds, president and CEO of News Media Canada, an advocacy group representing 800 print and digital publications across Canada, including Northern News Services publications. "He sort of did it all. He was a vocal supporter of the industry and always had an opinion," said Hinds. "I think he gave the whole part of the country a unique voice" and mentored "fantastic people" into the industry, said Hinds. "Very few people can say they created an industry in a

JACK SIGVALDASON region. Because of his position he had a pan-Canadian profile. I also think he occupied a unique place in the industry given what he did and how he started the Northern News," he said. Sigvaldason is survived by

his wife Mae, his daughter Karen, son-in-law Norman Ball, son John and granddaughters Maya and Megan. "Sig believed passionately in the fundamental strength of NNSL and Canarctic, the staff and the strong future ahead. I too share that belief and will continue to support you in that work," Karen Sigvaldason wrote in a letter to staff the day after his death. Braden said Sigvaldason's legacy in the North is farreaching if not widely understood. "I think the North owes him some real acknowledgement ... a level of gratitude. I know it was important to him to give voice to people, to the communities. I think that's his legacy," said Braden.

Challenges for new Cape Dorset school Late sealift and many vacant teaching positions pose hurdles for Cape Dorset high school by Derek Neary

Northern News Services

Kinngait/Cape Dorset

Excitement has been growing for Cape Dorset's new high school, but the school's opening date has been thrown into question due to the late arrival of sealift. Furnishings and various fixtures for the newly-constructed education facility were unloaded on Aug. 6, almost three weeks behind schedule, and that has ratcheted up the pressure on Kudlik Construction to try to meet deadlines, said Claude Constantineau, chair of the community's district education authority (DEA). "I think the construction company has a good enough crew, enough resources in there, to get all the furniture and everything else installed but we're sort of waiting right now to hear back from them," Constantineau said on Aug. 9, noting that appliances, cupboards, trades equipment and various pieces of furniture are among the items that still need to be put in place. "We're hopeful that we're still going to meet the (Aug. 27) deadline for the start of school," he said, adding that the handover of the school to the Department of Education was scheduled for Aug. 13. An employee with Nunavut Sealink & Supply Inc. said sea ice caused

the shipping delay. Another hurdle in Cape Dorset will be the recruitment of teachers, according to Constantineau, who said he knows other communities are facing similar obstacles. The Department of Education needs to fill six positions at the high school, and the elementary school has four vacancies, he said. "Last year we were short in the high school, I think, four teachers the whole year so that just added to the whole (set) of challenges... and that puts stress on all of the existing teachers and tends to create early burnout," said Constantineau, who is in his second year as DEA chair and third year with the organization. The original Peter Pitseolak School was destroyed by fire in September 2015. Sense of enthusiasm Despite the stumbling blocks, there is a sense of enthusiasm about the new Peter Pitseolak High School, Constantineau said. The DEA's annual general meeting at Sam Pudlat School on Aug. 8 attracted more than 90 people, a much larger crowd than in the past, he noted. "It's probably the most people I've seen at a community event in a long time. It was quite a successful event," he said.

With the sealift arriving weeks late, fixtures and furnishings for the new high school in Cape Dorset may not be installed in time for the scheduled opening of the school later this month. "There was good input from the parents and positive input in terms of the new school opening." Another bright spot that the DEA is aiming to capitalize on is the Welcome to Kindergarten program, which got off the ground as a pilot project during the latter part of the

2017-18 school year. It gave prekindergarten youngsters exposure to socialization and preschool reading material in Inuktitut as well as other learning resources and activities. "They (school staff) also distributed some of the books and put together a take-home package where

parents could use that material to help prepare their children for kindergarten," Constantineau said. Between 30 and 40 youngsters participated in the Welcome to Kindergarten program and he said he expects a similar number will be targeted this year.

Baffinland production proposal low on info NIRB to determine if hearing is necessary by Michele LeTourneau Northern News Services

Mary River

Lack of information is the message most commenters noted in their submissions to the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) for Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation's production increase proposal for its Mary River Iron Mine. The deadline was July 26. "Generally, it was found the information provided in the production increase was limited in substance, not providing sufficient information to perform a full review of validity of the impacts predicted by Baffinland," stated the Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA). Specifically, QIA noted there is little evidence to validate predicted impacts on wildlife. "Specific concerns not addressed by Baffinland are truck traffic, effects on traditional land use, and the increased dustfall from the Tote Road and ore handling," the Inuit organization stated. It also noted "important gaps exist in the understanding, monitoring, and mitigation of project effects on freshwater and marine environments at existing production levels. These knowledge gaps have not been adequately addressed in the proposal. "The proposed increase … will increase project effects and the uncertainty surrounding these effects will increase unless these gaps are filled." The company is seeking to produce and deliver six Mt/a (megatonnes per annum) rather than the approved 4.2 Mt/a. Baffinland wishes to construct a new camp at Milne Inlet and add to its fuel capacity there, to go along with an increase in the amount of ore hauled up the tote road and shipped out during the open water season. If Baffinland's proposal is approved, 58 ship voyages currently in place would increase by 25 to 83 voyages. (Numbers are approximate.) In a June letter to NIRB requesting the review process be streamlined, the company warned that it would find itself "in a position of having to idle operations and reduce its workforce for a portion of each year starting in

2018." Because employees had become so efficient, they produced and delivered more iron ore to Milne Port than was initially planned for, the company said. WWF Canada took issue with Baffinland's position. "WWF suggests that Baffinland has levied a threat of slowdown that is based on its own noncompliance (i.e. producing and shipping over and above permitted amounts) and that it is now seeking retroactive approval rather than having applied for amendment ahead of modifying its operations. WWF suggests that Baffinland return to its approved rate of production." NIRB received comments from several organizations and agencies along with QIA and WWF, including the Government of Nunavut, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Parks Canada and Transport Canada. Malachi Arreak of Pond Inlet was the sole member of the public to comment. Arreak's concern had to do primarily with narwhal. "Today, there are no more narwhal pods. At least half of the population that used to live in Eclipse Sound has migrated to Jones Sound and points west. We have lost over 12,000 narwhal in the last two years, mainly due to changes in their traditional summer habitats," stated Arreak. "They have moved to areas east, north and west towards Peel Sound and further, to avoid predation and the noise of industrial ships passing constantly through Eclipse Sound, Pond Inlet and Baffin Bay." DFO also expressed concern, and stated it would need additional information. "Proposed increases in shipping … have the potential to cause additional negative impacts to marine mammals. Potential negative impacts as a result of increased shipping activities may include: behavioural changes and/or disturbances resulting from increased frequency of noise, and increased mortality resulting from shipping strikes.

Comments to the Nunavut Impact Review Board on Baffinland Iron Mines Corp.'s production increase proposal show a general dissatisfaction with the level of detail to support the company's claims the increase's effects can be categorized as "not significant." watercourse realignment has potential to negatively impact the fish and fish habitat within the existing watercourses," stated DFO. Arreak stated he "hope(s) more consideration is given to impacts on wildlife that is occurring now, causing socio-economic impacts to the Inuit of Pond Inlet." Environment and Climate Change Canada stated Baffinland "has not provided enough information to support the conclusion that there will be no significant change to the project effects on air quality with a production increase." The department notes that levels of dust and the impacts to air quality and water quality have been an ongoing issue at Mary River. "While the original Environmental Assessment (EA) for the early revenue phase assessed

truck traffic at 182 one-way trips, the forecasted 276 one-way trips constitutes a significant increase in traffic over the original EA and therefore the potential incremental impacts of increased activity should be assessed," stated the department. Baffinland did not produce this assessment, citing no new activities are planned. Baffinland now has the opportunity to respond to comments, and based on all information gathered NIRB will confirm whether or not a final hearing will be held, said NIRB's director of technical services Tara Arko via email. "If no hearing is required, the board will be issuing its decision on the proposal on August 31," she said. NIRB will then be looking at Baffinland's proposed rail line.

A canoeing adventure on the Coppermine River

Kugluktuk Bertrum Elatiak covered close to 250 km on a memorable canoe trip down the Coppermine River July 12-26. Elatiak was part of a group of 15 voyagers in seven canoes. Fellow Kitikmeot paddler Thomas Kaohina was among them. The adventurers started out in Yellowknife, flew to Plummer's Lodge and then a bush plane took them to a location along the Coppermine River to enter the water. Elatiak, 22, said he enjoyed the scenery during the trip, his first time canoeing on the Coppermine. He spotted two muskoxen at September Mountains and a caribou near Escape Rapids. The paddlers encountered some hot weather – almost 30 C, according to Elatiak – so they welcomed the breeze off thewater. There was an element of danger, but the travellers had safety gear with them, said Elatiak. The Escape Rapids were the trickiest spot to navigate, but Elatiak said he and his paddling partner maintained control of their vessel. "(You have to) know where you are and ask for help at any time," he said, adding that he was paired up with more experienced paddlers throughout the trip. Elatiak said he looks forward to more canoe expeditions in the future. – Derek Neary

Iqaluit airport featured on History TV

Iqaluit The Iqaluit International Airport, along with other Arctic construction projects, is featured in Episode 9 on History TV's Project Impossible series titled Conquering the Arctic. A US release is scheduled for the fall. "Above the Arctic Circle, projects are underway that are opening up the Arctic to the rest of the world. What does it takes to build in the world's coldest conditions," ask the show's producers. Noel Best and Leslie Merrithew of Stantec, the company which designed the airport, wrote about their experience with the project on the Stantec website. "We were determined to prove (and fully realize) that it's possible to produce great architecture and engineering solutions under the P3 process – however challenging it may be at times," stated Best, principal on the project. "Overcoming obstacles and challenges through creativity and innovation is what made our work on the Iqaluit airport truly special." Merrithew, Stantec's transportation engineer on the project mentions a few of those challenges: the lack of daylight during the winter, spring, and fall seasons affected the scheduling and duration of the project; the extreme cold caused crews to require long and frequent warm-up breaks; hurricane-level winds and snowfall caused the site and town to shut down at times due to blizzard conditions. She also mentions how the location made it harder to get spare parts or construction supplies. – Michele LeTourneau

QIA raises daycare subsidy

Qikiqtani Parents needing daycare in the Baffin region will have access to an extra $10 in subsidy from the Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) under the organization's Parental Subsidy for Daycare Users program. "I'm committed to improving affordability of daycare for families across Qikiqtani," stated QIA president P.J. Akeeagok in a news release. "Access to affordable daycares gives children a head start and parents the opportunity to re-enter the workforce sooner." The resolution was originally passed at a May 2018 executive committee meeting to allocate funding from the Benefits Fund to the daycare subsidy program, which is administered by the Kakivak Association. The decision was made based on feedback received during a tour of all communities in the region. Inuit parents who are currently receiving the Kakivak Association parental daycare subsidy may now receive up to $29 per day. The increase in parental subsidy is retro-active to April 1, 2018, according to the release. The funding will assist with approximately 200 childcare spaces. This represents a QIA investment of nearly $500,000 per year in children who attend licensed Qikiqtani daycares, according to QIA. This program will continue to run on a trial basis until March 2020. – Michele LeTourneau

Students head back to school

Nunavut Students across the territory have begun to trickle back into the hallways of Nunavut's schools. The wave began in Gjoa Haven and Baker Lake Aug. 9 and 10. Naujaat and Taloyoak follows suit Aug. 13, Kugluktuk on Aug. 15, Whale Cove, Pond Inlet, Iglulik and Arctic Bay Aug. 16, and Cambridge Bay, Rankin Inlet and Chesterfield Inlet on Aug. 17. Coral Harbour and Qikiqtarjuaq return Aug. 20, Clyde River, Kimmirut, Arviat and Grise Fiord on Aug 23, Cape Dorset and Resolute Bay on Aug. 27, Pangnirtung and Sanikiluaq on Aug. 30, Apex, Hall Beach and Iqaluit on Sept. 4, and, finally, Kugaaruk on Sept. 6.

Fashion show taking shape

Gjoa Haven This year's Umiyaqtutt Festival will include a fashion show during its second day, and substantial cash prizes will be up for grabs. There will be two categories – homemade fabric clothing and traditional fur clothing – open to all ages at the high school gym on Aug. 26. Prizes for each category will be $1,000 for first, $750 for second, and $500 for third.

There's been quite a bit of early interest in the event, said Jennifer Ullulaq, the festival's lead event planner. The fashion show will be co-sponsored by Parks Canada and the Hamlet of Gjoa Haven. The festival will be held Aug. 25 to Sept. 3. – Derek Neary

Hamlet office grand opening

Kugaaruk Planning is underway for a grand opening for the Hamlet of Kugaaruk's municipal office Aug. 30-31. The two-day event will involve an open house, a ribboncutting ceremony, lighting of the qulliq, games and, tentatively, a community feast with country food, said Bobby Anaittuq, acting senior administrative officer. Although hamlet staff started moving into the office space in August 2017, there hasn't been a formal opening ceremony held yet. "I know it took a lot of time but we were waiting for the building to be 100 per cent, or close to 100 per cent complete," Anaittuq said. "It's a huge improvement from our older building. Our old building was full of mould and the heating system wasn't too good, so it's a big upgrade from that." Kudlik Construction erected the new hamlet office. That same company is currently working on Kugaaruk's new school. – Derek Neary

Iqalungmiut speak out against water bylaw Lawyer says proposed amendments are risky by Michele LeTourneau Northern News Services

Iqaluit

Iqalungmiut don't like the draft amendments to the City of Iqaluit's water and sewer bylaw, the city heard at a public consultation the evening of Aug. 9. Most objections had to do with the fact that water is a public resource, and should remain so, while the proposed changes to the bylaw do appear to veer toward privatization, even if unintentionally. "A compilation of what everyone has said will be done and published on the city website," Mayor Madeleine Redfern told the 40 or so citizens in attendance. A dozen had to stand outside the council chambers due to its limited space. "Ultimately it's to council's discretion as to how Bylaw 200 will be amended," said Redfern. Bylaw 200 governs the provision of water and sewage treatment and supply services. In a nutshell, the city is seeking to solve a temporary

problem: too strapped to service three local businesses, it wants to enable private hauling of water and sewer. But its solution, introducing licensed service providers, has raised fears of water privatization – the selling of water for profit. "I think, fundamentally, some of the changes proposed in the bylaw do change how our city interacts with its water source," said Bethany Scott, adding she doesn't consider all the changes to be purely administrative. After quoting section 65.2, which states a licensed service provider can resell water at a rate the provider deems appropriate, Scott said that change was unacceptable. "Water is a common resource," she said. "I really don't think we should be allowing private companies to be reselling for their own profit." Lawyer Anne Crawford continued on that theme, also stressing the temporary nature of the problem needing to be addressed, the importance of keeping the water resource in

the public realm, and having a transparent system with documents the public can access. "I think everybody's goal is to have a community where water resources are available, and used responsibly," said Crawford, adding the amendments move the city into a whole new area. "We've introduced a lot of complexities with contracts with various entities." Likening the city's relationship to water as a monopoly under the existing bylaw, she said the proposed changes essentially cut up the municipal monopoly and hand out the pieces. "Even though people are saying we're not privatizing (the water), we're using contracts, we're using a lot of private standards ... and there are risks in that. There's risks of there becoming ownership, there's risks of people paying less attention at the next council and the next council, and nobody's looking." Crawford said, in looking at the current bylaw, she can find two or three ways to

get water to the businesses needing them without threatening the public monopoly or making major changes to the bylaw. Redfern perked up at Crawford's suggestions. "So from what you said, one alternative solution is that the city has its current system and that possibly the city could enter into an RFP or RFT and have that third party actually be contracted by the city to deliver water to the three business entities, or for the wastewater. Is that what you're suggesting," asked Redfern. "That's right, create an agency relationship, and you stay completely in control," said Crawford. Bylaw 200 in its current state reads: "No person, except those authorized by council, shall directly or indirectly engage in the provision of municipal services within the Town." Coun. Joanasie Akumalik asked Crawford she had considered the amendments from the point of view of Trad-

Lawyer Anne Crawford addresses City of Iqaluit council at a public consultation on amendments to its water and sewer bylaw Aug. 9. itional Knowledge. "It definitely came to my mind that the (proposed) bylaw is very oriented to ownership and property and private control, and those aren't commonly seen as the elements in Nunavut that we try to integrate into our government," Crawford said. "I wondered if fundamentally these are the principals we should be basing this on. Other Iqalungmiut also noted they felt alternate solutions could be found to get water to businesses needing

it, without rushing to approve amendments which could have lasting and unknown effects into the future. The public consultation was not intended to deal with the many other issues brought up in relation to water, such as the Nunavut Brewing Company Ltd., the state of the city's water supply, or how Apex is serviced. The task force struck to address the low state of Lake Geraldine will update council and the public at the Aug. 14 council meeting.

Arviat

Roller hockey is coming to Arviat and Michael Hunt knows the community will love it. Hunt, who is one of Canada Inline's top players, flew into the community from his home in Winnipeg to deliver an inline hockey camp, which began on Aug. 10 with the installation of the Sport Court surface the hamlet purchased to put on top of the concrete base in the arena. Hunt said the first couple of days he spent in the community were spend installing the 16,000 sq. ft. of court properly. "Sport Court is good for multiple sports," he said. "Concrete sweats when it gets warm and it's terrible for grip, not to mention the wear and tear on your joints." Inline hockey looks just like ice hockey but there are several noticeable differences. It's a 4-on-4 game as opposed to 5-on-5 with ice hockey, the puck is lighter and there are no offsides or icing. Hunt said inline hockey actually forces a player to be creative. "Ice hockey is a dump-and-chase game," he said. "In inline hockey, you can have a player cherry-pick down at the other end but that forces players to defend them one-on-one. It forces you to pass the puck more and allows for more creativity. There's nowhere to hide." That, in turn, will make participants better ice hockey players once the ice goes back in, he added, because it enables players to work on their skills. "You remember and keep all of the defensive things you did in inline hockey and incorporate that into how you play ice hockey," he said. "All of a sudden, it becomes an east-west game, like the Soviet Union used to play, rather than a north-south game, which is what we're used to." The week of camp will be an introduction to the sport for the community and everything will be there for players to get going. "I brought 50 pairs of girdles, 50 pairs of pants, 100 pucks," said Hunt. "They'll get fitted and then we'll teach them how to skate in blades and, most importantly, how to stop. You can't stop on the side like you do in ice hockey." The most important thing Hunt wants to do is let them play. "They're kids and they want to have fun," he said. "The best thing I can do as a coach is to let them get a feel for everything and let them have fun." Inline hockey has more of a foundation than you might think. Canada Inline sends national teams to various international tournaments, including the several world championships on offer each year. Hunt said the possibilities are endless and that includes education. "I've had kids as young as eight playing

"There are hundreds of NHL players who will never get to do play with Team Canada and I've had a kid do it. There are universities that offer full scholarships for roller hockey and there are several national teams that travel. The

opportunities are there to travel the world, get a degree or even play professionally in some countries." Hunt is hopeful he'll be able to bring this to other Northern communities with Arviat being used as a test to see if it catches on.

The hamlet will be hosting a $10,000 Texas Hold 'Em tournament on Aug. 17 and 18 at the school gymnasium. It's open to anyone 16 years of age and older who pays the $100 buy-in fee, which gets a player $3,000 worth of chips to play with. If a player runs out of chips, they will be able to re-buy $3,000 worth of chips up until the second break of play in the tournament. Some of the other rules include a 40-second time limit to make decisions on each bet, no alcohol whatsoever at the venue and no spectators within 6 ft. of the tables.

"I would love to introduce this across the entire North," he said. "There was a lot of excitement down south when they heard I was going up so anything I can do to bring the sport to more people, I would love to do."

Battle on the diamond

Every team got a guaranteed seven games in the roundrobin before the playoffs began on the afternoon of the 12th with the top four teams playing for the cash.

"Probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life was by stripping off and showing his shortcomings." That line is as true today as it was then and it's appropriate when it comes to what happened at a Seattle Mariners game on Aug. 4. Yes, someone decided it would be a good idea to show what the good Lord gave him and then be tackled like an idiot. But that's not the story. He apparently took a bet of $80 that he wouldn't do it. Here's the other problem which will most likely haunt him forever: the streaker has been identified as an Irish citizen living in Vancouver. No big deal, you might say, but if he's charged and convicted of even that crime, as threadbare as it may be, he will face deportation from Canada. No joke. So let's recap: Irish national enters the U.S. from Canada to watch baseball game, takes dare of $80 to run on the field in his birthday suit, could get deported. Never blame the Irish for having common sense. Take it from me. My last name gives it away. And finally … Good Idea: Throwing a no-hitter. Bad Idea: Throwing a no-hitter and losing. Here's a riddle: how does a baseball team win a game in extra innings without recording a hit? Sit back and I'll spin a yarn. This actually happened on Aug. 6 between the Tampa Tarpons and Clearwater Threshers, both of which play in the Florida State League, a class-A advanced minor

league. Rather than write it out, here's how the Tarpons described it on their website: "Clearwater did not have a base runner until Luke Williams became the extra-inning runner when the scoreless game moved into the eighth. Christian Morris relieved (Deivi) Garcia and Henri Lartigue grounded a ball back to the mound. Williams broke for third and Morris threw to Diego Castillo at second. Castillo attempted to throw Williams out at third, but dropped the ball. After a groundout by Edgar Cabral, Daniel Brito rolled one to first baseman Steven Sensley. Williams scored as Sensley's throw to the plate arrived late, giving the Threshers a 1-0 lead." Now, you're probably wondering what this extra-inning runner is all about. Those of us who play softball know this all too well because we call it the international tiebreaker. Because class-A advanced games are only seven innings long, there was a rule brought in by Minor League Baseball called "pace of play" where the top of the eighth inning sees a runner go to second base to start the inning. The home team gets to use it as well. I like the rule and it should be instituted in Major League Baseball as well. It would make things awfully interesting and keep teams on their toes. The only crappy thing about this is Garcia, who pitched a gem, is out a perfect game. So yes – you can pitch a perfect game and still lose. And you thought Trump winning was impossible … Until next time, folks …

Kangiqliniq/Rankin Inlet

A team of seven firefighters was on its way to represent Nunavut at the National Aboriginal Firefighters competition in Dauphin, MB., from Aug. 8 to 12. The team was picked following tryouts that were held in Rankin Inlet earlier this month. For five grueling days, 17 firefighters from across the territory competed for a spot on the team, which consisted of five starters, one alternate and a coach. The event in Manitoba saw the firefighters taking part in relay-race style competitions, with five individuals taking part in each one. The races are intended to test the firefighters strength, agility, smarts and above all their ability to work as a team. In the end, the firefighters picked their team by voting on a secret ballot. The team included four firefighters from the Kivalliq including team captain Kyle Lowe and Darren Makkigak from Rankin Inlet, Ramon Kaviok from Arviat and Naujaat's Michael Siusangnark. Twenty-year-old Siusangnark is the youngest member of the team. For him, this is a family affair as two of his uncles are also firefighters. Makkigak has been on the force for parts of the last three years and this was his first time trying out for Team Nunavut. He has represented Nunavut in other sports and he said it will be an honour to get the chance to do so as a firefighter. "It means a lot to me," he said. "We'll be doing our best for team Nunavut." Several veterans of the competition turned down the opportunity to attend nationals but came to Rankin Inlet to help impart wisdom on their colleagues. "I want to try and be a role model and provide inspiration," said Glen Sutherland, who has been a

year's games because he was notified that he'd been hired as Kugaaruk's fire chief while he was training in Rankin. However, he said has been happy to pass on advice to the new blood.
