Ramp used by Pope donated to Iqaluit high school

Wood used to build a temporary ramp for Pope Francis at Nakasuk Elementary School in Iqaluit sits piled outside Inuksuk High School on Tuesday. The ramp had been built at the back entrance of the elementary school for Francis, who uses a wheelchair, when he met with residential school survivors inside the building on July 29. The ramp was dismantled over the weekend. The wood was then donated to the local high school’s woodworking class, said Iqaluit District Education Authority spokesperson Lynda Gunn.
