All is bright

It was a silent night on Thursday, Dec. 3 when the Christmas lights that adorn Nunavut’s legislature were turned on. In years past the event, part of the Christmas lights across Canada program, would draw crowds in the hundreds. This year, because of the pandemic, there was nothing. “Although public health guidelines concerning large gatherings did not allow us to hold the traditional lighting ceremony at the legislative assembly, we warmly invite Nunavummiut to view our display of festive lights,” said Paul Quassa, Speaker of the legislative assembly. “During this challenging and unprecedented time, it is more important than ever that we draw strength from the spirit of the season.” (Photo by Dustin Patar)
