Dempster Highway Get’s My Vote

There is no doubt in my mind that the Dempster Highway is one of the Seven Wonders of Canada. First Nations people have had an intimate relationship with the Dempster region for a long, long, long time. The Tr’rondek Hwech’in, Na Cho Dun, Teett’it Gwichya Gwich’in, Nihtat Gwich’in are some of the nations who have lived in harmony with this land long before it was discovered by white people. It is home to caribou, bear, eagles, moose, fox, marmots, wolverine, rabbit, sheep (which we saw) and wolves just to name some of the full-time residents.
tombstone It was a jaw-dropping day — magic and because of this, I think I’ll vote for the Dempster.
