The Toonik Tyme igloo building contest took place yesterday in Iqaluit and Paul Irngaut won first place. The Nunavut Court of Justice Building in Iqaluit was the site of this annual event that highlights one of the special survival skills of the wild north. The frigid cold weather limited the number of participants to only a handful and not many spectators. Hoping for better weather next year! These beautiful photos by Tristen Omik highlight the feel of the event.
This new mean machine was built/modified by Great White Bear Tours at their Winnipeg shop, Anything Custom. They have just trekked from Winnipeg to Churchill with some valuable cargo. Mission completed!
