In our first issue of 2016, we welcome Nick Sibbeston into our new “Icebreaker” section, as the fiery NWT senator talks about pounding the table in the politics of a bygone era. We also list off the best things to see and do in the North that you've never heard of, with our month-by-month insider's guide. Then, Tim Edwards takes you across the Mackenzie Delta's tundra with Canada's only reindeer herd. Plus: check out the winners, and honourable mentions from our annual photo contest.
