Happy Easter

The staff at Nunatsiaq News wish our readers a restful Easter. Our offices will be closed on Good Friday, but we’ll be back hopping to it on Monday, April 22—much like this Arctic hare, spotted by Clare Kines outside Arctic Bay in June 2017. (Photo courtesy of Clare Kines)

The race is on

Kudos for compassionate public service

Meadows has served as legal counsel for the Nunavut Impact Review Board and Nunavut Water Board for the past decade.
