When You Don't Care About ChristmasTop Story - December 2022
Deck the halls with lots of tinsel fa-la-la la-la la la la la Or something like that... right? Here's the thing, I don't celebrate Christmas. Why? Because I'm Jewish. Which seems like a pretty valid reason, yet the world is still screaming "Merry Christmas" in one ear and overplayed (yet catchy) jingles in the other.
Nunavut, the largest territory in Canada, is currently COVID-19 free. Yet, it has followed the rest of Canada's pandemic protocols and has gone into shutdown mode. Although there are no confirmed cases of the spreading-like-fire virus, it remains one of the most at risk places. Why? Because Nunavut is an at-risk territory on a normal day.
Being Screwed Over Really Nails You

A Continental Trip
Going from -50 degrees to +40 degrees in the span of six months is definitely what I would call “climate change.” From the tiny middle-of-nowhere island in the Arctic, to one of the largest cities in Mexico, I can tell you right now that heat is not my style. My body is feeling the strain just a tad; going from Igloolik to Monterrey is definitely an adventure.

When You're Craving Tuktu
Ever had your lunch frozen, a little furry, and on a piece of cardboard before? Well let me tell you, it is DELICIOUS. A little salt, soy sauce, or even some onions in butter, and you have yourself a scrumptious meal ready to be butchered into chunks. If this sounds like your ideal dinner date, or just a typical Tuesday with a twist, read on.
The Arctic 'Bus' Route
Back in September of 2018, I had embarked on a move of a lifetime from urban Toronto to a small island in the Arctic Cirlce: Iglulik, Nunavut. For those who do not know, the province of Nunavut is geographically right above the province of Ontario. Yet to get from one to the other—specifically to Iglulik Island—I needed to take three separate planes, one of which landed for a quick "pit stop." This was a full day journey with absolutely no guarantee that once you're in the north, the plane will land where it is supposed to. From Toronto, to Ottawa, to Iqaluit, to Hall Beach, and finally to Iglulik, the full day adventure was exhausting but filled with magnificent landscapes.
