Last week in Baker Lake the temperature was in the minus fifties with the wind chill. Baker Lake is the only “inland” community of Nunavut’s numerous small centres. Located on a lake at the mouth of the Thelon River, the population is about 1700 and over 90% Inuit. It is near the geographic centre of Canada and home to the Territory’s only operating mine ( Agnico-Eagle’s gold mine).
There is no designated courthouse and the Nunavut Court of Justice flies to the town from Iqaluit, on average, once every two months. A typical court sitting is three days of appearances and trials and preliminary hearings. Sometimes there are civil cases as well. The court holds its’ sessions in the large meeting room of the Nunamiut Lodge.
During the December Circuit, there were six counsel present. Two were students at law, three were there as defence counsel and one lawyer was there as Crown Prosecutor. During the course of the first days it emerged that three of the six were Ainlay grads. They were the prosecutor, one defence lawyer and one of the students.
They are Barry McLaren (’69) (Crown) Albert Frank (’74) (Defence) and Iman Amin who is an articling student living in Rankin Inlet
