Rick Hansen visits Iqaluit on 25th-anniversary tour

APTN National News
When Rick Hansen embarked on the original Man In Motion World Tour in 1985, he was unable to visit the Canadian North.

On a two-day visit to Iqaluit, Hansen made good on his wish. He spoke to classrooms, gave Man in Motion medals to Iqaluit volunteers, and even square-danced. Yes, you read that correctly: square-danced.

APTN National News reporter Kent Driscoll has the story.
