If this were a romance novel, no doubt Harris would be the swashbuckling Fabio, astride the bow with chest puffed and locks blowing in the wind. In reality, any arctic researcher will tell you research like this is far from a solo mission.

There is not one hunter, but many. Glaringly absent from this article are Inuvialuit and Inuit partners, Polar Continental Shelf logistical staff, Parks Canada field offices in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, Canadian Coast Guard and a host of federal and territorial depts and agencies not to mention the millions in taxpayers' dollars that support this effort year after year.

Let us give Harris and Bernier the benefit of consideration and assume this oversight was not at their pen alone.

This is a fascinating article. Particularly fascinatinindividual people who've participated in the expeditions described herein. It leads one to wonder if Canadian Geographic does it's own fact checking, or if they merely take what they are given by the government. Part fabrication, part exaggeration this story is as far off course as those early explorers were.
