Pierre Elliott Trudea is the Prime Minister of Canada. He will be doing a tour of the Arctic. The buzz around here is that he may be coming to Coppermine N.W.T., for a visit. Nothing has been confirmed, everyone is in a tizzy, we must do something special for the Prime Minister of Canada. What do you think that people from the “Outside” want to see when they travel to the Eastern Arctic? Why Polar Bears of course. They are known as Nanook in this area, that is what they are called in the language of the Inuit.

We have no Polar Bears, at least not on a regular basis like Churchill, Manitoba. They can conjure up the big Spirit Bears on demand there. How can anyone compete with that? Truth be told, we are really happy not to have the giant white bears hanging around waiting to eat us, or the dogs. I can’t imagine bumping into one in a white out; it would be a big bump with bad consequences. Biting dogs are enough to deal with.
