Happy 20th Nunavut
After Peter Ittinuar first brought up the idea of a new territory in the North, it would take another 20 years to come to fruition. On April 1, 1999, Nunavut officially became a territory.
It’s a place where children regularly go to bed hungry, teenagers often don’t finish high school, women experience violence at 13 times the national rate, and men commit suicide more than anywhere else in the developed world.
