Hunting the Northern Character

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Tony Penikett

Canadian politicians, like many of their circumpolar counterparts, brag about their country’s “northern character” but what do they mean, exactly? Southern perspectives fail to capture northern realities. During decades of service as a legislator, mediator, and negotiator, Tony Penikett witnessed a new northern consciousness grow out of the challenges of the Cold War, climate change, land rights struggles, and resource megaprojects. His lively account of clashes and accommodations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders tells the story of an Arctic that the world does not yet know.
