Operation Harpoon?

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

A harpoon is used to hunt sea mammals for the survival of the hunter’s family and his people, so that his family and people of his community could eat what was killed.

If Canada’s military operation in Afghanistan is going to be called “Operation Harpoon,” some Inuit might think that the Canadian military is practicing cannibalism.

Perhaps they should call it “Operation Javelin,” as this operation is more for winning than providing food for your family with what you killed.
