A materially significant donation in Cambridge Bay

Sewers and craftspeople in Cambridge Bay flocked to Kiilinik High School on June 4 to scoop up a portion of 10,000 metres of fabric donated to the community by Canada Goose. The company states that it has given away more than two million metres of fabric in Northern communities over the past decade.
