Iqaluit waterway cleanup planned for Friday
Volunteers to meet at 9 a.m. on Aug. 7
The City of Iqaluit and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association are hosting a waterway cleanup this Friday, Aug. 7.
The cleanup will focus on several waterways around the city: the beach front, from the Coast Guard station to the graveyard; Geraldine Creek, from the hospital to Frobisher Bay; Carny Creek, from the bottom of the Upper Base road to the Co-op gas bar; and nearby lakes.
Those interested can either meet behind the elders qammaq, building #226, or at city hall, building #901, at 9 a.m.
Once there, volunteers will check in, co-ordinate cleanup locations and pick up gloves and supplies.
The day will wrap up at 4 p.m.
While there won’t be a barbecue this year, there will be a raffle.
Tickets will be available between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the morning supply pickup.
