In the land, on the water and in the air, people, animals and goods make their way across the vast Canadian North. In the April issue, we look at road building and why some communities are happy to stay disconnected. We talk to a sealift crew member with marine transportation in his blood. And we look at a few species whose migrations are more impressive feats than necessary movements.
It isn’t all about transportation though. We look at the history and continued use of the amauti—the traditional baby-carrying jacket worn by Inuit women—and at the radically changed landscape of the North that harkens back thousands of years to when the Laurentide Ice Sheet first retreated.
