ICC chair supports Canada-Greenland air link


Kenn Harper’s comment on the need for “people-to-people” links between Canada and Greenland is well taken. To get to Nuuk from Iqaluit requires a connection via Copenhagen, Denmark!

Lack of communication is a huge disincentive to developing and maintaining economic, social and cultural ties with Greenland. Politically, it makes it difficult to work together to address international issues such as the recent challenge we faced with the restrictions issue on trade in marine mammal products.

With the ICC Assembly coming up in Barrow, Alaska this July, it certainly would be helpful in practical and economic terms if we had an airline route between Canada and Greenland.

I hope the re-establishment of the direct link will be given a priority soon.
