Police are investigating after a vehicle hit and killed a woman in Whale Cove Sunday night.

RCMP responded to the incident around 11:15 p.m., according to a news release issued Tuesday.

    Condolences to the family of the pedestrian.
    I hope the speed limit was followed as too many nowadays do not follow it.

    Why does Nunatsiaq News share stories like this? If you haven’t asked the family for permission to post this “story” then shame on you. Have a little respect for families who lost a loved one. This goes to all the lost a life “stories” Nunatsiaq News posted

      Easy there @Inuk. Maybe go start a news group yourself then you can censor what you like.
      If Nunatsiaq followed your lead, who knows what kind of slanted media would be posted.
      They withheld the victim’s name out of respect. Respect that!

      No one has a right over an event, no matter how tragic or personal it might be. There is no reason why a newspaper should not report a tragic story. I don’t think a newspaper or any media requires a person’s or a family’s permission to publish a story as long as what they say is true, published in good faith and with the purpose of informing people of events. In fact, I don’t think they should leave out names except in the situation where the next of kin/family hasn’t been contacted yet.

      What world do you live in?

      Family’s permission? They have no authority to grant or withhold permission.

      Wow, I’m just stunned that you would think that this is the case.
