Re: North East Canada?
I am from Cape Breton originally, close to a little fishing village called Port Morien and I can assure you it is not northern at all. It is beautiful country, especially in the Mabou and Ingonish areas.
I am a civil engineer and travel all over the north for construction projects. You may want to look into it before you travel to Nunavut, there are literally no roads besides the community roads. Most communities only have a few kms of roads and the majority of people drive ATVs... you have to rent trucks from construction companies and even then it is very hard to do.
I am actually going to Gjoa Haven after the long weekend, maybe I'll grab some pics and post the terrain... it is like being on a different planet.
