Ice Conditions Continued

Yesterday, we gave a report on ice conditions along the coast.

Today, we have a few more reports to give.

David Igloliorte is the Town Clerk for the Hopedale Inuit Community Government.

He says the ice around Hopedale is less than 10-12 inches thick.

Although it’s not that thick, he says it is still good for going off.

We also talked to Ernie Ford of Nain.

The ice here is as thin as 20 inches in some areas.

He says it’s usually between three and four feet thick this time of year.

Many people are still going off hunting and fishing.

Rigolet is yet to inform us of their ice conditions.
