Welcome to mosquito capital on Victoria Island, yes the mosquitoes are back. We have had much warmer weather lately. A couple of times it rained and cooled off in town, which was a relief from heat and dusty roads.
The ice is slowly going and there is no more ice at the river and the bay area. But out towards the mainland there is still thin rotten ice.
Soon our residents and campers and fishers will head out to mainland by boat. A few families usually head to their homeland in Bay Chimo and Bathurst Inlet areas.
Patients with appointments in Yellowknife and Edmonton continue to fly out for their medical treatments that are at high risk such as cancer treatments.
Wearing masks is mandatory when flying on the planes due to the pandemic. Please be safe and continue to stay a safe distance, especially in hospitals. and public places when out for medical appointments. Continue to keep washing your hands.
Once again is it commercial fishing season in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut so the float plane is busy flying in and out of fishing camps where our commercial fishermen are harvesting for the fish plant Kitikmeot Foods.
Cambridge Bay and area are well known around the world for it’s famous Arctic char. Many restaurants and businesses continue to order our famous Arctic char and the plant is set up to sell fish with federal inspection standards in place.
We have been known as a fishing village for many years and still are famous for arctic char. Quana also to families and friends who continue to share their harvest with community members and to our Elders.
Everyone is busy making dried Arctic char, dried lake trout. It is a delicacy and the best snack for us Inuit, for our children and Elders and everyone else. Be safe when out fishing. Have a great summer everyone. Look after each other.
God Be With You Son. Happy Birthday up in heaven.
