For many Niagara residents, spending a summer week ‘up north’ means driving a few hours to nearby cottage country. But for Brock alumnus Joe Pelino (BSc ’91), that summer trek north means flying almost 2,400 kilometres to Iqaluit, the capital city of Nunavut. Every summer for the past 14 years, Pelino has gone to Iqaluit to help coach the Nunavut Stars during a four-day ice hockey camp. The program draws 80 to 120 players aged five to 18 from various Nunavut hamlets.
