Marine infrastructure is an issue for many Iqaluit candidates in this territorial election, with several of them calling for a new dock or a deep sea port in their campaign platforms.
For Suzanne Paquin, the president of Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping, this couldn’t make her happier.
“If all the candidates are talking about it, it’s a very good start,” Paquin told Nunatsiaq News.
Paquin said Iqaluit and other Nunavut communities need spending on simple, basic marine infrastructure projects, rather than one big mega project.
