Cool shades for sunny days in Resolute Bay

281

Fifteen Resolute Bay youth are sporting sunglasses thanks to an RCMP initiative.

Cpl. Brad Gregory, who arrived in the community as detachment commander a year ago, noticed that many youth didn’t have eye protection despite 24 hours of daylight for three months of late spring and summer.

Gregory solicited donations from a Canadian-based sunglasses company. The donated pairs of sunglasses arrived on Tuesday.

Fifteen Resolute youth can put on a pair of sunglasses this summer as a result of a donation sought by the community’s RCMP commanding officer.
