Can no one in the NGO's or Govt for that matter come up with a plan to wean us off for profit airlines it boggles the mind that a territory that needs vast sums of money from the Federal Govt just to carry out day to day tasks and has less population then a sold out NFL game is forced to pay airline prices so they make a profit. I've been here a long time now I've seen airlines grow from small regional carriers to large regional carriers and it's always the same old song "look how much we've done for you" For my money no community in Canada that has no other way to connect with the rest of the country should be held hostage by airline prices. In closing I just want to ask the age old question "Where are the flying cars ? "

  1. You are probably the only other one who remembers the Danes offering to extend a Copenhagen - Nuuk flight twice per week to include Iqaluit. Would have given us return flight for about $450 in those days. Gateway to the rest of Europe.

    Nope, our own #@%!* transportation authorities blocked it!

    Instead, we continue to pay $2,000 + just to get to Ottawa, from whence we can avail ourselves of $400 tickets to Gatwick or Paris.
