    Northern makes an insane amount of profit.

    Update the 270p camera from 20 years ago.

    Funny how some people would go after the assaulted worker and the store owner and ignore this pathetic loser.

    500$ worth of goods can fit in one backpack? In a small town grocer? Doesn’t sound like this man is the thief. Price gouging galore. Don’t feel bad for Northern in the slightest, the worker though has my sympathy.

    People are getting desperate because of the cost of everything getting jacked though the roof it is just a matter of time before we start seeing mass looting events.

    Because of the cost of living imposed on us by taxes upon taxes up on taxes people are going hungry everyday, children are not eating regularly. Easy enough to stop one looter, try stopping 50 or even 100 looters. You might catch one or two but you wont catch them all.

    Like Starlink, Walmart need to come to Nunavut to help us from struggling.

      Walmart would end up selling for higher prices up here

        Self check out. No staff to stop the looters.
