Empty buildings in Baker await PPD employees


While I might risk being accused of supporting your editorial in the Dec. 6 issue because I’m a Qamanit’uaq (Baker Laker) booster, I have listened with some amusement for the past three years as the GN screamed that it could not find enough housing and office space in Iqaluit and Rankin Inlet for GN staff.

It has even reached the point where jobs are advertised now without housing.

For the past three years there have been almost two dozen empty GN family housing units here in Baker Lake and a half-empty GN office building, both waiting for decentralized tenants and workers.

It makes perfect sense to have PPD move to Baker Lake and put Qulliq Energy and NPC and PPD under the same roof. Welcome to Baker Lake! It’s about time!
