Papal planning: Workers add fenced barrier at Iqaluit school Pope Francis will visit

Preparations continue Wednesday for Friday’s arrival of Pope Francis at Nakasuk Elementary School in Iqaluit. Workers from NCC Development Ltd. erected a stage with lights and a fenced barrier at the front entrance to the school, where the Pope is expected to make a public address Friday afternoon after first privately meeting with Indigenous residential school survivors. Pope Francis is scheduled to travel to Quebec City on Wednesday, the second city on his tour after Edmonton, where he delivered an apology for the abuses that many Indigenous children experienced at Canada’s residential schools.
