    Thoughts and prayers are with the community of Kugluktuk and the families of those affected at these times. Seems like it was only last week a young girl passed away in a snowmobile accident. Stay strong Kugmiut.

    For future reference, this is someone’s daughter and family member. It would be thoughtful to refer to her ‘remains’ as opposed to ‘body.’
    My heart goes out to family, friends and the community of Kugluktuk <3
