Kuujjuamiut took in the ice break up this weekend along the Koksoak River, where it flows about 50 kilometres from its mouth at Ungava Bay. From Kuujjuaq on May 28, you could see the solid ice on the river begin to give; by early evening May 29, the river had broken up entirely, revealing its icy blue waters. Kuujjuamiut will likely see more ice break up in the region this week, with Environment Canada calling for sunny skies and temperatures rising as high as 9 C. (PHOTO BY ISABELLE DUBOIS)
