They form the only lineup in the city of nearly 8, people. On Twitter, residents jokingly warn each other to use the washroom before joining the wait, to bring a book, to dress for the crisp fall air. Someone set up a barbecue to sell hot dogs to those standing outside. To most people in North America, the opening of a beer and wine store is nothing special. For decades, Nunavut has flirted with prohibition. All communities in the territory, apart from Iqaluit, currently have some sort of constraint on buying alcohol. In four communities, drinks have to be shipped from government-owned warehouses in Rankin Inlet or Iqaluit, or from outside the territory.

By , the New Fighter Aircraft competitors were short-listed to just three aircraft types: The F , F , and the Tornado were rejected due to their high purchase price, while Dassault dropped out of the competition. The F L combined the systems and twin-engine layout of the F that Air Command favored with a lighter land-based equipment setup that significantly improved performance. Northrop, the primary contractor for the F L version, had not built the aircraft by the time of the NFA program, waiting on successful contracts before doing so.
While Northrop offered the best industrial offset package, it would only “pay off” if other F L orders were forthcoming, something the Department of National Defence DND was not willing to bet on.

Suaasat a traditional soup made from seal, whale, caribou, or seabirds. Many hunters will eat the food that they hunt on location where they found it. This keeps their blood flowing and their bodies warm. One peculiar custom of eating meat at the hunting site pertains to fish. In Overland to Starvation Cove: A History, Heinrich Klutschak explains the custom: At these meals, no one is obliged to join in the meal; Inuit eat only when hungry.

Expedition Travel Will Steger overseeing the preparations The expedition team and support staff began today at 5: Finally, the weather outside was starting to feel like winter. The colder temperatures allowed the sea ice and tidal overflow to firm up and improve travel. After final lashing of equipment and interviews with local radio, the team pushed the pound sleds through the streets of Iqaluit and down to the sea ice where the 44 dogs waited.
It took about an hour and a half to hook up the dogs to the sleds and get ready for travel. The mixing of the two different cultures provided a fascinating comparison, the nylon webbing and cordura of the American sleds contrasted with the seal skin, walrus hide ropes and caribou antler components of the Inuit sleds.
To see it unfold and come to life after so many months of preparation inspired all who viewed and experienced the blustery scene. Flat, slick sea ice made for easy going for the first stretch, but after an hour or two underway the route twisted through jumbled and broken pack ice with pressure rubble extending five to six feet upward. This nasty section of bone-jarring, sled-crushing ice proved difficult for all involved and it took a toll on sleds and on the anticipated schedule.
What should have taken minutes, began to take hours. After the pack ice the team headed inland and to the trail to Pangnirtung. The trail the angled up a steep and rocky slope, but fortunately there were several extra people on hand who had accompanied the expedition out of Iqaluit to help push, pull and grunt the sleds to the top. People and dogs working together was a must and once a sled was committed to heading for the top there was no turning back.

Posted 10 April – We already have a MXZ F so I knew that the comparable power output was enough for me, it was the fuel efficiency that I was after. There were a lot of threads with first impressions of the ACE that made me comfortable in getting it. You see, up here in the Arctic, cold weather starting takes on a whole new meaning. If you’re far out on the land or ice and you can’t start, it could mean life or death. But from what I read, the ACE was starting just fine in the cold so long as one was good at keeping the battery maintained and also carrying some extra supplies to boost or charge the battery if needed.
What a long machine with that inch track! The ACE is an amazing little powerplant. The quiet rumble and smokeless riding have converted me to 4-strokes. I now cringe every time I have to start up our F. The ACE is surprisingly powerful partly due to the gearing. I have only been able to max it out at 60 MPH, if I had a longer flat to work with I could probably get it to 65 max.
The top speed is limited by the long track and larger machine.

I find myself in Igloolik this week, an Inuit community of almost 1, people which sits on its own small island about km northwest of Iqaluit, just off the northeast corner of Melville Peninsula. Arriving Sunday night around 4: The average temperature in Igloolik this week is around C, before the wind chill. And there are only about 3 hours of sunlight, including twilight.
I feel motivated, humbled, slightly embarrassed by this opportunity.

For songwriter and guitarist Josh Q. Like many classic blues artists, Josh Q. Songs about feeling the blues and getting over it are no small thing in Nunavut Territory, a place where the suicide rate is 10 times the national average, and in the demographic for young males aged , more like 40 times the national average. It made total sense for Josh Q.
You can hear Josh Q. Through their label and their own music, the five-member roots-rock Jerry Cans also from Iqaluit have been co-leading a national campaign to win more attention for music from the north, and from Inuit people. Their sound offers a kind of pan-folk-rock fusion that includes both English lyrics and some traditional throat singing. Along with musicians like Josh Q. Internationally acclaimed Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq is part of this small wave of Northern and Inuit artists who are bringing renewed enthusiasm to ancient Inuit music traditions, notes Josh Q.
There are so many throat singers now.
Review: Expedition Sport 600 ACE in the Arctic
Here’s are some issues I’ve encountered so far: Almost on a weekly basis, something is out of service for “maintenance” for a day. Garbage chute, laundry room, parking garage, electricity, water etc. In the span of about a week, we’ve had 3 fire alarms go off that resulted in apartment evacuation. Apparently there’s a problem with the system. But you’d think after the first or second time they’d have fixed it.

While Northrop offered the best industrial offset package, it would only “pay off” if other F L orders were forthcoming, something the Department of National Defence DND was not willing to bet on. The F almost entered Canadian service through the backdoor due to the Iranian Revolution.
In the aftermath of the revolution, the United States cut off all military supplies to Iran, which meant that the Iranians’ new fleet of F s would potentially be rendered unflyable due to a lack of spares. The Canadians offered to purchase them at a steeply discounted price. Negotiations ended before a deal was reached as it was revealed that Canadian involvement was crucial in the smuggling of American embassy personnel out of the new Islamic Republic.
The order included 98 single-seat variants and 40 dual-seat variants, for a total of purchased, plus 20 options which were not exercised.

The First Breakdown Saturday, April 23 was a great day to go exploring. One of my coworkers, John, wanted to see the floe edge and asked if I could be his guide. John teaches Grade 8. I confessed that I only travelled half the distance but was confident that we could both figure out the rest of the way.
We would follow the main skidoo tracks as far as we could and then rely on my Garmin GPS. We were only going to spend an hour or two taking pictures then head back.

Movin’ on up from the GTA to the Canadian Arctic Wednesday, March 20, The Homestretch The final portion of our vacation occurred mainly in our hometown, where we have our house and where Lily’s family lives. We managed to surprise both of her parents, although her sister had been in the know for a while. When we arrived at the house, Lily ran upstairs, opened her parents’ door and asked, “What’s for breakfast?
Her mother was completely shocked, and when that wore off, extremely happy to see her eldest daughter home. Her father was at work, so Lily’s mother asked him to buy food on his way home, but it was all food that Lily likes, which made him suspicious. He was still very happy to see his suspicions confirmed.

Go to the new guestbook! I’ve eliminated the link to add posts to this guestbook. The amount of junk posts was getting overwhelming and time didn’t allow me to keep it as clean as it should be. The new guestbook link has replaced the old add link. You can find it at http: I have added modifications to it to stop harmful scripts and allow me to verify posts by email notification before they go public to make sure nothing is posted to the site that could be offensive.
Posts that haven’t been verified yet will simple display an unavailable message until I activate it. Since I am rarely away, activation will be within a day most times. If things go smoothly without spam, I will turn off email verification so posting will be immediate. Please give me feedback as to what you might like to see added to the guestbook, or problems encountered. I plan on adding a button so users can choose to display their email address if they like – the default right now is not to display, and can’t be changed.
So if you want people to contact you, leave it in the comments box too. While I have removed these posts once noticed three times now, it is clear that this is going to be an ongoing problem that can’t be solved unless the script is changed to prevent this type of thing from happening. While I am able to clear out these posts, I am unable to edit the script that drives this particular guestbook.
