Radio static makes for quiet campaign in Kimmirut
Kimmirut residents say they haven't heard much from the South Baffin candidates running for election.
Part of the problem is with the local radio station.
Jeannie Padluq is from Kimmirut. She says the local station still opens as scheduled and is able to air, but its broadcasts are marred by distortion and static. She says people in Kimmirut can't hear the CBC either, "so it gets pretty quiet."
Padluq says she's heard that one of the candidates from Cape Dorset is campaigning in Kimmirut.
The hamlet hopes to resolve its radio issues soon.
