Canada’s fighter jets are once again roaring in the skies over Nunavut.

It’s all part of Operation Nanook.

The federal government is hoping that an increased military presence in the area will strengthen their sovereignty claims in the Arctic.

APTN National News reporter Wayne Rivers met up with one young pilot and files this report.
