Thanks to Iqaluit’s searchers
On behalf of the Reids, the Normans, and myself, we would like to express our deepest gratitude, appreciation, and sincere thanks to the community of Iqaluit and to each and every person who dedicated themselves to the search and rescue efforts in finding our loved ones.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to mention every person, as it was the largest organized search and rescue attempt recorded in the last 10 years.
We would like to send a special thanks to the following groups who were directly involved: Iqaluit Search and Rescue, Iqaluit RCMP, Iqaluit Fire Department, Uqsuq Corp., Kenn Borek Air Ltd., Polaris, Arctic Cat, the Northern Skidoo Shop, the Northern Store, CASARA, RCC in Greenwood, the CBC and CKIQ radio stations, EMO, the Government of Canada, First Air, and to all the residents of Iqaluit for all their time and efforts.
It was overwhelming to see the amount of support from the community. From the smallest gestures of condolence, donations of food, money, skidoos, fuel, oil, prayers, volunteers, and emotional support from everyone, it is difficult to find the words to thank you enough!
