Rankin Inlet names arena

Hundreds of Rankin Inlet residents gather at an arena-naming ceremony on Wednesday. Darren Flynn, the hamlet’s senior administrative officer, said the event, which included a community barbecue, bouncy houses and over $30,000 in prizes to be won — like an ATV — exceeded expectations. The arena was named Agnico Eagle Arena, after the mining company that has signed a 10-year agreement to contribute $50,000 annually to the hamlet, Flynn said. (Photo by Pam Simons)
