We just put a very dear loved one on a plane to travel to Arviat. He has been living and working there for the past ten years. Though we have been fortunate that he has had safe travels, the thought of what could happen is never far from our minds. This tragic event brings this home even more so. Our hearts go with him as he travels today and tomorrow. We are so sorry for the heartache of the families and friends of those who were lost. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May your loved ones rest in peace.

While the Telegram has kept the name private, Ms. Ghent gave quite an interview to someone that ran in the Winnepeg Free Press, giving the name of the deceased and releasing quite more info as well. I found this very disturbing as the name began to appear in other news items afterwords. I don't think it was her place to give this info out. Did she get consent from the family? Highly unlikely. She went way beyond common sense with this one. I realize she is a fereelance reporter/journalist, but she lives in that small town and should know what this could do to the family. Very irresponsible Ms. Ghent!
