Let The Games Begin!

awglogo.jpgWhitehorse is about to be taken over... by the 2012 Arctic Winter Games. AWG has been around since 1970, celebrating northern sport, culture and friendship. Athletes from across the circumpolar north come together to compete and share in the spirit of the games. Regions include Alaska, Alberta North, Greenland, Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Nunavik Quebec, Yamal, Sapmi and Yukon.

Sunday marks the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Games, so on The Weekender we'll hear from a number of those behind the scenes.
