Rec co-ordinator David Clark discusses the details of an April 23 exhibition hockey game and silent auction to benefit youth at risk in Rankin Inlet with the community's own NHLer, Jordin Tootoo, in Rankin this
past week.
Big night in Rankin
Jordin Tootoo to help youth at risk with game, silent auction
by Darrell Greer
Northern News Services
Rankin Inlet
Hockey fans in Rankin
Inlet had a huge surprise in
store for them when it was
announced a special exhibition game featuring hometown hero Jordin Tootoo
would be held at the local
arena tomorrow, April 23,
beginning at 8 p.m.
A special silent auction
will also be held during the
evening, with all proceeds
from the game and auction
going to the Pulaarvik Kablu
Friendship Centre's Youth at
Risk program in Rankin.
Rankin recreation coordinator David Clark said
the two teams in the charity
exhibition game were selected
using a draft format.
He said Tootoo and Troy
Aksalnik will be leading one
team, while he and Pujjuut
Kusugak will captain the
other squad.
"We're pretty excited about
the game, and very pleased
that all the money we raise
will be going towards the
friendship centre's youth-atrisk program," said Clark.
"The silent auction will get
underway in the community
hall around 7 p.m. and run
until the end of the hockey
game, at which time the winning bids will be determined.
"Jordin told me he was
bringing 'a boat load of stuff'
to be auctioned, and we also
looked to the community to
donate other items to add to
that.
"We'll definitely be
holding a 50-50 draw and
doing some other fundraising events throughout the
evening that will be a lot of

fun for everyone."
Clark said he has no doubt
there will be some exciting
items up for grabs at the silent
auction.
He said he also has little doubt the action on the
ice will provide its share of
excitement for the community's hockey fans.
"It's going to be a competitive game.
"Anytime you have the
majority, if not all, of the best
hockey players from a community playing against each
other, of course they're going
to want to win.
"It might be all for fun and
stuff at the beginning, but you
know the guys are going to
try and be on the winning side
once things get going."
The arena will be reopening for the special night,
after the hamlet announced
it would be closed for the season earlier this month.
Clark said there may be
some water drip from the
ceiling during the game, but
that should be the extent of
any problems.
He said the players can
expect the ice surface to be
pretty much in the same
shape it has been throughout
the recently completed hockey season.
"It was just a matter of
turning the (ice-making)
plant on and letting it run for a
couple of days so the ice is in
good condition for the game.
"We're expecting a very
good crowd for the game and
auction.
"Even though there's been
a lot of hockey played in Rankin Inlet this year, I would
think the fans will always
come out any time they get
a chance to watch the best
player to ever come out of our
community, who just happens
to be an NHLer.
"Add onto that it's all
for a good cause, and we're
expecting a solid turnout for
the event."
Clark said he hopes all the
community's best players are
in town and available for the
game.
He said the contest will
be played under regular senior men's rules, with three
20-minute periods of straight
time, and each team having two lines, two pairs of
defence and a goalie.
"Jordin requested that each
team only use two lines, so
that's what we're going to go
with.
"The game should be
pretty fast paced with two
lines and that quality of players.
"Nobody's going to want
to be embarrassed out there
playing with an NHLer on
the ice, so our hockey fans
should be treated to a pretty
good game.
"It should be a good evening for the whole community
and a good charity fundraiser
for youth at risk in our community."

Bravo time in Arviat
Annual challenge races set for this coming weekend
by Darrell Greer
Northern News Services
Arviat
The 12th annual Xtreme Bravo
Challenge is set to go this coming
weekend in Arviat.
The event is sponsored by the
Arviat Bravo Racing Club.
Race committee president Pierre
Ikakhik said there are three divisions
set for this year's race, with men (18
and over), women (18 and over) and
old-timers (masters, 40
and older) ready to run
for the flag.
He said the male
and female racers will
run eight laps in their
qualifiers and 12 laps in
their final, while the old-timers will
run a 10-lap, winner-take-all race.
"We'll be running eight heats on
the 25th, and then have the two
finals and the old-timer's race on the
26th," said Ikakhik.
"We don't have a youth race,
but they have one in the drag races
which is for kids 13 and 14, I believe.
"The drag races will be held
sometime in May, but an exact date
isn't set yet."
Ikakhik said the Bravo races stay
popular in Arviat because they're a
lot of fun and the smaller machines
aren't that dangerous.
He said races featuring the big
machines are exciting, but also dangerous.
"Sometimes I think those who
race the big machines are a little
crazy," said Ikakhik with a laugh.
"It's really sad they don't make
the Bravo anymore, but, so far, getting parts for them hasn't got too
hard.
"It's just a matter of time until
they are, but, until then, we'll keep
having a lot of fun racing our
machines.
"We're hoping the Bravo will
come back in a few years, but, if
it doesn't, we'll keep
holding the annual
Xtreme Bravo Challenge until the parts get
too hard to find."
Ikakhik said he's
hoping to see racers
from Whale Cove and Rankin Inlet
at this year's Bravo challenge.
He said there were about 40
racers this past year, and he hopes
to, at least, equal that this coming
weekend.
"I hope to see all the racers from
2014 back again.
"We get a lot of fans out for the
races, and we get good support from
the business community.
"We thank the business community for its help and sponsorship of
the Xtreme Bravo Challenge, especially Calm Air, Eskimo Point Lumber Supply, the Hamlet of Arviat,
Padlei Co-op, Arctic Connections
and Kivalliq News.
"We couldn't do this without their
support."

Sammurtok stripped of portfolio
Rankin Inlet/Nunavut
Premier Peter Taptuna stripped Rankin
Inlet North and Chesterfield Inlet MLA Tom
Sammurtok of his Community and Government Services portfolio on April 14, after
Sammurtok was charged with driving under
the influence the previous day.
Taptuna said Environment Minister Johnny
Mike will assume all of Sammurtok's ministerial duties, including the Community and
Government Services file.
"Pending Minister Sammurtok's court
appearance, he remains minister without portfolio," stated Taptuna.
A member can only be removed by consensus vote in the Nunavut legislative assembly.
Sammurtok released his own statement
later that day, apologizing to his family, colleagues and all Nunavummiut for his poor
judgment.
"I will not make any excuses or place the
blame elsewhere, as I am fully responsible for
my actions," said Sammurtok in the statement.
"When the legislative assembly reconvenes
in May for our spring sitting, I will accept
whatever discipline my colleagues deem
appropriate.
"I realize that as an elected official, I am
accountable to my constituents and the electorate of Nunavut.
"As public figures, we are responsible to
uphold certain values. I realize a breach of
trust is a hard thing to overcome, and, as an
MLA, I will do whatever it takes to rebuild
the trust."
Sammurtok is scheduled to appear in the
Nunavut Court of Justice on May 21.

Taking the reigns
Counselling manager thrilled to be helping in the Kivalliq
by Darrell Greer
Northern News Services
Rankin Inlet
Bonnie Almon brings a ton
of experience to her position
as counselling manager with
Kivalliq Counselling and Support Services (KCSS) in Rankin Inlet.
Almon has a bachelor's
degree in social work and has
spent decades working in the
field.
She's been employed in
both federal and provincial
institutions, which included
working with a number of
high-risk male offenders.
Almon co-facilitated grieving-and-healing workshops in
1995 in Gjoa Haven, Kugluk-
tuk and a number of other
communities.
She found the experience
interesting and said there's
something about the North
that gets in your blood.
"I absolutely loved my
first time in the North," said
Almon.
"My home was in Calgary
then, and we spent about three
months going into the different communities.
"I left it for awhile, but then
I got the chance to come back
to Cambridge Bay in 20032004 to do some contract
work, and I was thrilled to
have the chance to come back
to the North.
"I found it totally amazing
because there's just so much
beauty in the North and so
many wonderful people."
Almon, who's on contract
with the KCSS until March
31, 2016, said it's a humbling
experience to work in the
North with Inuit.
She said she's always eager
to speak with elders in each
community and hear Nunavut's history.
"The Cambridge wellness
centre received a bit of money
from the Government of
Nunavut in 2004 to do the first
28-day treatment program for
women in Nunavut.
"We had 10 graduate the
gender-specific program,
which was absolutely fantastic.
"I was in my glory because
it's my passion to do that type
of work."
Almon spent time as a
supervisor with Child and
Family Services in the NWT,
before taking the position
of executive director for the
Kugluktuk Wellness Centre.
In total, she's spent about
13 years in the North.
She said she saw the posting for KCSS counselling
manager while visiting Rankin Inlet this past year.
"I was quite honoured and
thrilled to be told I was the
successful candidate.
"I supervise the seven
KCSS workers who work with
community members in regard
to offering support and services to family members or
direct survivors of residential
school.
"The intergenerational
impact over the years is tremendous.
"If the workers are dealing with someone who needs
extra support or counselling
services, they call me and I
either coach them through or
talk to the person requiring
the extra services directly on
the phone."
Almon said a KCSS trip
to Arviat earlier this month to
work along with both a men's
and a women's group was a
fantastic experience.
She said there was a good
turnout of women in Arviat,
and the sessions went extremely well.
"They expressed their
needs and are asking for
additional visits to the community.
"That's so important, to
go out and discover what the
community actually needs.
"First you find out what
the people need, and then you
base your services around
those needs, as opposed to
telling people what they want.
"That was my first opportunity to work in the Kivalliq
and it's nice to go in, hear what
people have to say and actually have the ability to help them
with their needs."

Campaign promotes safe shelter
Numerous services available to
aid victims of domestic violence
by Darrell Greer
Northern News Services
Rankin Inlet/Kivalliq
The Rankin Inlet-based
Kataujaq Society is using
National Victims of Crime
Awareness Week as a vehicle
to increase awareness of the
services available to people
who may need help escaping a
violent situation.
The society received $8,075
from Justice Canada's Victims
Fund, as well as an additional
$3,000 from the University of
Ottawa, to launch a regionwide awareness-raising campaign.
Victim's Week is being
used to promote the services
of the Kataujaq Society's safe
shelter throughout the Kivalliq.
Katuajaq board of directors
vice-president Michelle Jackson said the main objective
is to spread awareness of the
high rates of domestic violence
in Nunavut, and to inform the
women and families of the
Kivalliq region that a safe
shelter is available to victims
of domestic violence who are
seeking safe refuge.
She said the society is
hoping to encourage women to
seek help and assistance from
local agencies, including social
services, mental health and the
RCMP, if they, or someone
they know, is experiencing
abuse.
"The safe shelter provides
safe refuge for women and
children fleeing domestic violence," said Jackson.
"The society wants to raise
awareness for Victim's Week
(April 19 to 25), and to let
people know about the safe
shelter and, just as importantly,
the services of a number of
various agencies for victims of
domestic violence.
"Articling student Iman
Amin of the University of
Ottawa is in Rankin working
on a practicum at legal aid,"
Jackson said.
"She has also been working with the society's executive
support, and put a lot of time
and effort into making this
project possible."
Posters have been ordered
from Iqaluit for the society to
have posted in public areas of
high visibility throughout the
Kivalliq.
It is hoped people seeking
help, but who may not want it
known, will see the information on the posters and know
there are different agencies
available to them.
Jackson said the board is
concerned people in other
Kivalliq communities still may
not realize the safe shelter is
available, even though its been
operated in Rankin by the nonprofit society since 1985.
She said board members
want to make sure people
around the region know there
is help out there, and that
they're not alone.
"The safe shelter is just one
aspect, and there is a social
services policy of different criteria a client has to meet before
being sent to Rankin.
"We really want people to
know that, even if the safe
shelter isn't available, there is
help through the RCMP, health
centre, social services, victim's
support and mental health,"
Jackson said.
"There's a lot of different
agencies out there who truly
want to help, and just going to
see someone at the local health
centre could open the doors to
finding other resources."

Bantam player Qaritaq Kusugak, left, and midget
player Tyrese Dias helped Rankin Inlet deliver a
one-two gold-medal punch at the 2015 Toonik
Tyme championship in Iqaluit earlier this month.
"Player numbers in Hockey
Nunavut are up for the third
year in a row.
"What may be written or
said about every jurisdiction
in Canada having hockey
numbers in decline is a general statement that's just not true.
"Many jurisdictions have
numbers that continue to grow
and, in Nunavut, it's part and
parcel of a few things.
"We've tried to better structure the framework governing
hockey in Nunavut at both the
zone (Hockey Nunavut) and
branch (Hockey North) levels,
and our efforts have met with
success."
Hockey Nunavut has been
working diligently to ensure
every player is registered.
The territorial organization has also stepped up its
efforts with minor hockey
associations to receive accurate team rosters for all events,
and ensure every player on
those rosters is registered with
Hockey Nunavut.
Nichol said Hockey Nunavut has also become more
diligent in issuing sanction
permits to host committees
running tournaments.
He said the permits not
only confirm a tournament is
a Hockey Nunavut/Hockey
North-sanctioned event, but,
also, that players are who
they say they are, no one's
suspended and everyone is of
proper age.
"It's also a risk-mitigation
issue for the host venue in the
event something bad should
happen.
"We've been far more diligent with our registration process and we're not just talking
about players.
"We're also talking about
coaches and officials being in
the Hockey Canada registry.
"So, our numbers are
growing mainly as a result
of Hockey Nunavut working
closer with its minor hockey
associations to get everyone in
the system properly identified
and registered."
Nichol said issuing a sanction permit is serious business.
He said an issued permit
is a statement of proper due
diligence having been done by
Hockey Nunavut.
"That permit says we, as
a representative of Hockey
Canada, have reviewed team
rosters, official's certification
and coach's information.
"In so doing, we have a
clear conscious in issuing a sanction permit with
the understanding the event
is going to be played within
the highest level of organizational protocols that go with
any tournament played under a
Hockey Canada sanction.
"We're going to keep pushing because too much continues to happen too close to
deadlines.
"More planning and coordination between the key
minor hockey associations and
Hockey Nunavut will further
allow us to better structure
the way we deliver hockey
programs, and that's going to
continue to be one of our priorities going forward."

Pakallak Tyme starts this Friday
Northern News Services
Hello, out there. We're on the air.
Yes, indeed, it's more hockey again tonight!!!
I'm sure many have been keeping their eyes on the big
games. Excitement is everywhere about who, or who will not,
be the champs.
But, you know, enjoy the games no matter which team you
cheer for. The playoffs only come once a year.
Gee whiz, what's with Mother Nature? Heavy winds,
blowing snow, mini blizzards, and then drizzling rain, warmer temperatures and sunny days. And we're just now heading
into May.
Nothing like having an assortment of weather to keep you
on your toes.
But, as has been said before, be sure to dress in layers and
please take extra gear when travelling on the land.
Also, please use care when going out in this bright sun, as
it can affect your vision quickly. Use sun screen for your skin
to protect it from ultra violet rays, or getting burned from the
sun.
Many people suffer at this time of the year with sensitive
skin. Put the lotion on and protect yourself.
Pakallak Tyme starts this coming Friday, April 24, and
many offices and businesses will close at lunch to allow
everyone to get out and enjoy this great time of the year with
family and friends.
Check the bulletins around town for the schedule of events
and get out there and enjoy yourself.
A huge thanks to all the volunteers and organizers who
help to make this event the success it is every year.
There's a lot of work involved in putting on these things
and sometimes the load gets heavy. So, volunteer to help out
wherever and whenever you can.
You'd be surprised at how much an hour of help is appreciated. Thanks again and we'll see you there.
P.S. Don't forget we have snowmachine races and dog
mushing. Don't miss all the action.
Belated happy birthday to hamlet senior administrative
officer Tom Ng, who celebrated his special day on April 20.
We hope you had a fabulous day, Tom.

28. Hope your day is wonderful for you, and you get to do the
things that make you happiest. Many happy returns of the day

Happy birthday to our very dear friend, Belinda Vandenbroeck, in Woodlands, Man., on April 30. Have a fabulous

Mikki Adams, on May 1. Have a wonderful birthday. We

your friends. Loads of love and God bless you, from your
mother-in-law, Joyce, fathers-in-law, Joachim and Harry,
sisters-in-law, Shannon and Pudlu, niece, Kathleen, and
nephews, Spike and Lalu. We love you very much and appreciate all you do for your family and others.
Happy fourth anniversary to Panikuluk and Eugene
Kubluitok on April 16. What a beautiful wedding and reception you had. What wonderful memories you made. May you
be blessed with many more happy years together, and may
you be blessed all the days of your lives. Lots of love from all
the family, and extra love from Joachim and Joyce.
Happy 51st anniversary to my dear brother and sister-in-law, Dennis and Dorothy Vosper, in Esterhazy, Sask.,
on May 4. Wow! Where the heck have all the years gone? It
doesn't seen all that long ago when you two were giggling
about the wedding and look at you now! Still giggling, making jokes and making each other smile. God bless you. We
love you both very much. Love from Joyce and Joachim in
Rankin Inlet, Colleen in Dauphin, Rick in Winnipeg and all
the family. Hoping to see you this summer. We won't be taking the advice from the gas station attendant, so you should
see us in about 2.20 hours after we call. Love you both
(xoxo).
Well, friends, time to go for this week. So, until next time,
a big hello going out to our elders, shut-ins, and those away
on medical or recovering.
Please be good to yourself and those you love, and remember to keep giving away those smiles like they were free!!
