For much of December 2014, Nunavut MP Leona Aglukkaq was forced to explain herself.
It started when an APTN Investigates episode showed residents of Rankin Inlet, NU foraging in the local dump for food.
Following that broadcast, the minister was heard heckling opposition members on the issue in the house of commons, is alleged to have asked for an apology from the town’s deputy mayor for raising the subject, and nonchalantly reading a newspaper in the house while the debate on high food prices in the north raged around her.
Today in Iqaluit, Aglukkaq surfaced to meet the media and begin 2015 where 2014 left off.
