THIS LAND | NFB INTERACTIVE
In March 2007 seven Canadian and Inuit Rangers, riding in a convoy of snowmobiles, covered more than 2000km from Resolute to the northernmost tip of Canadian soil – 412km from the North Pole. Joining the mission was filmmaker Dianne Whelan. As the first woman and non-military member of a northern patrol there was skepticism about her ability to make it. As a full-fledged member of the expedition, she was expected to pull a 2000-lb wooden sled behind her snowmobile, through blizzards, -50°C temperatures,
labyrinths of crushed sea ice and near-impassable glaciers.
