SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019

Our 35th-anniversary special takes a trip back in time to chronicle the story of the North from the past 35 years, as only Up Here can tell it. Plus, we've got stories of terrifying Inuit monsters, busting the ghosts of Rankin Inlet's haunted fire hall, and a quest to grow the perfect northern apple. October is also election time in the NWT, which means it's time once again to talk about party politics versus consensus government. All this plus much, much more.
