About the North Extreme? Yes, Definitely!


Ottawa’s Museum of Nature is featuring an imaginative diorama exhibit produced by the American Museum of Natural History (New York) and titled, Extreme Mammals: The Biggest, Smallest, and Most Amazing Mammals of All Time. The impressive exhibit officially opened June 14, and featured a reconstruction of a 2007 fossil find in Canada’s High Arctic. This tooth- some but gorgeous fellow shown here, a Coryphodon, ostensibly from Ellesmere Island, is sure to delight all who may meet him during the life of the outstanding, thought-provoking exhibition.


Positive Force for Northern Youth


Key corporate partners, including First Air, The Airline of the North and the National Hockey League Players Association - Dreams & Goals Fund, along with Project North organizers rallied together to raise significant funds ($50,000) toward the purchase and delivery of hockey equipment to youngsters in the North. With substantial donations from First Air and the NHLPA added to the proceeds from the sale of Ottawa photographer Michelle Valberg’s


Arctic Kaleidoscope photographic collection, exhibited at the Canadian Museum of Nature this past March through May, more children than ever in the North will have the opportunity to hone their hockey skills and to enjoy and play the game safely. Project North has provided hockey equipment to children in 10 Nunavut communities including Pond Inlet and Igloolik.
