Their stories of survival throughout the lifetimes of living through the perils of an unforgiving terrain and climate are a true testament of their resilience and spirit.

From Inspector Charles Constantine's first voyage to Canada's North in 1894 with the North West Mounted Police, the guidance given by the Aboriginal people in the North were paramount to his policing efforts.

Nova Scotia beat Quebec’s Laurie St-Georges (4-3; Laval-sur-le-Lac) 8-3, while New Brunswick also needed an extra end to beat Saskatchewan’s Kourtney Fesser (4-3; Saskatoon) 8-7.

In other Seeding Pool men’s play, Newfoundland/Labrador (3-4; Stephenville) beat the Yukon’s Brayden Klassen (0-7; Whitehorse) 9-3, while in women’s Seeding Pool action, the Yukon’s Alyssa Meger (2-5; Whitehorse) beat Zoey Walsh of the Northwest Territories (0-7; Hay River) 12-6, and Newfoundland/Labrador’s Brooke Godsland (1-6; St.

Tuesday night at the Stratford Rotary Complex, Sadie Pinksen’s women’s team gave her territory its first-ever win at the Canadian Juniors, a 7-3 win over the Northwest Territories. Arthur Siksik’s team from Rankin Inlet — third Tyson Komaksiutiksak, second Javen Komaksiutiksak, lead Ryan Aggark and coach Sean Turriff — ended a 33-game losing streak, dating back to Nunavut’s entry into the Canadian Juniors in 2013, with a 9-6 win over Matt Miller of the Northwest Territories (1-6; Yellowknife) to open Seeding Pool play. After the losses, we were used to it, and we weren’t really sad. Turriff, who’s based in Ontario, didn’t start working with the team until Jan. The team’s regular coach, Angela Dale, couldn’t attend the Canadian Juniors, and through Bill Tschirhart, was able to make a connection with Turriff to coach the team in Stratford. Everybody should have a shot in their game that they can brag about, and that was great.

(The six teams of each gender that didn’t make the Championship Round are playing Seeding Pool games to determine final rankings and set the pools for next year’s Canadian Juniors in Victoria). I’m a little bit emotional,” said the 20-year-old Siksik, taking a long breath to collect himself. But yesterday, I was down about the loss against Newfoundland (a 14-0 loss to Newfoundland/Labrador’s Greg Smith). “It’s hard not to be really emotional,” said Turriff. After the games, we’d talk about those shots and we’d be leaving feeling pretty good.

Some food products such as cereal, dry pasta and canned goods, may be sold after their best before date has expired.

“According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, these foods are still safe to eat when the date has passed,” Reimer said.

“If necessary, stores are permitted to sell these products, these sealift products, until the next sealift shipment has arrived,” Reimer said.

“Mothers have to buy Carnation milk for their babies because regular milks are too expensive,” Papatsie said to a background orchestra of honks from passing cars.

This is the third consecutive year Papatsie has staged a food protest, which started shortly after she created the Facebook group Feeding My Family. I think all the Northmarts have had experience with expired best before date food,” Papatsie said.

The page went viral and now totals more than 20,000 members who post photos of overpriced and deteriorating foods in grocery stores. Some fruit and vegetables, the price has gone down, but there’s still high prices and there’s still expired food and best before dates on the shelves.” That’s a new theme at this year’s protest — exposing a long-held practice by northern grocers of selling expired, moldy or rotten food. In fact, Iqaluit resident Norman Nungaq rummaged through his cupboards searching for boxes of foods that have passed their best before date and glued the products to his four-paneled cardboard sign.

But not much has changed since the first protest in 2012, Papatsie said. “We looked through our cupboards and found many foods that were expired, even from last year, even that were bought this month,” Nungaq said.

Canada's north is an environment that is unlike anywhere else in the world.
