Ready to rescue

Nunavut’s Coast Guard auxiliary has a new rescue boat: the MV Kruger, inaugurated Sept. 14, seen here in Cambridge Bay. Along with Rankin Inlet and Gjoa Haven, Cambridge Bay was among the three Nunavut communities that received $1 million to purchase search and rescue boats and equipment through the federal government’s Indigenous Community Boat Volunteer Pilot Program.

    Beautiful umiakallak but I hate seeing local Inuit being called “auxiliary” when in fact, they are the most advanced skilled knowledgeable professionals they can be to provide such important service and dangerous duties, stay safe to all umiartutiit

    Auxiliary’s are usually part time or supplementary help. In most cases they are locals who do provide their expertise and knowledge to assist or take over an operation. Thank you to those who volunteer their time and risk their lives to save others!
