  1. This is a very misleading news story and the content is not worthy of APTN.  The information is “city centric”, perpetuating un-truths about the Qausuittuq crash, and does nothing to further the cause of promoting Northern and Rural Search and Rescue initiatives.  I am very surprised to see this type of “news” on APTN.
