Sikumiut Update

The weather has been very mild and it’s been raining for about two weeks now.

This may have hunters and travelers in Nain wondering about the ice conditions.

The Sikumiut Environmental Management LTD. members went out to check the ice last week.
We spoke to Gus A Dicker who works with Sikumiut.

Dicker says the ice is dangerous to travel on because the ice is very thin and soft.

He traveled with Ron Webb to Anattalâk and Sâttusuak to check the ice.

Dicker adds that tomorrow or Saturday, he and Webb will go out again to do some more measurements of the ice.
