A photo on the campaign's website www.responsiblenunavut.ca shows three women at a bar or restaurant with the words, "I stopped at two drinks last night... so that I can start our trip this morning." The GN plans to hold information sessions about the campaign in Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Baker Lake and Rankin Inlet. At the campaign launch, from left: Cambridge Bay Mayor Jeannie Ehaloak, RCMP Sgt.
