Happenings around Nunavut

Prime Minister Stephen Harper sailed through part of the Northwest Passage Aug. 24 aboard HMCS Kingston, which is looking for the lost Franklin expedition. PM plays defence
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - A game of floor hockey at Nakasuk School Aug. 25 spoke volumes about Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Nunavut leg of his Northern tour. He played defence with a team of the country's best – Olympic gold medallists Hayley Wickenheiser, Charles Hamelin, and Kaillie Humphries. The following day, he did the same, performing target practice at York Sound with Canada's Armed Forces during Operation Nanook.

Ryan Stambaugh of Hellfire Suppression Services responds to questions about the landfill fire at a community information session Aug. 25. Hellfire descends on Iqaluit dump
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - With boots on the ground and hoses in hand, dump fire specialists Hellfire Suppression Services of Alberta started attacking Iqaluit's now notorious landfill fire more than three months after it started burning. On Aug. 28, six Hellfire crew members, two city firefighters, and crews using Tower Arctic's heavy equipment started fighting the fire, which has been burning since May 20.

An Olympic-sized donation
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - If the youth of Iqaluit needed some motivation to get active, there was never a better way than on Aug. 25 at Nakasuk School. Hockey player Hayley Wickenheiser, bobsledder Kaillie Humphries and speedskater Charles Hamelin, all Olympic gold medalists for Canada, were in the city for a big day of announcements and fun for the city.

The federal government's announcement of continued funding for broadband in Nunavut was welcomed by many Northern stakeholders, but central to the affordability for consumers is the high cost of satellite bandwidth.

Funding preserves Nunavut broadband
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - Last week in Pond Inlet Prime Minister Stephen Harper re-affirmed the federal government’s commitment to developing broadband access in Nunavut. Approximately $50 million is earmarked for Nunavut and Nunavik in the federal plan to spend $305 million over five years nation-wide under the Connecting Canadians fund.
