About a year ago, a subject that received much attention both locally and nationally was the proposed construction of a deep water port out at the old Nanisivik mine. The Prime Minister Himself even showed up to make an announcement in person. Since then, I hadn't really heard too much more about this but this little CBC article caught my attention this evening. While I feel it is a good thing that Canada is taking a stronger stand on northern sovereignty issues, I just hope that this little project has a few spin-off benefits for the people on whose land this port will occupy. I don't think it´s too much to ask.
