It's easy for emotions to run high on Arctic issues. We are home to some of the world's remaining truly wild lands and animals. Our culture and language are strong and unique. Images of the North, the polar bear and inuksuk for example, are iconic and speak to the identity of our country, our identity and multi-million dollar brands. Yet when emotions run high, as they have recently over seal products, it is northern people who live with the effects of decisions made elsewhere.
