TRANSCRIPT FROM THE MARCH 7 NUNAVUT LEGISLATURE ASSEMBLY
Member’s Statement 035 – 4(1): Recognizing Constituent Candace Sudlovenick
Ms. Angnakak: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise today to recognize the accomplishments of my constituent, Candace Sudlovenick. She is a second year student in Nunavut Arctic College’s Environmental Technology Program, who recently completed an exciting expedition to the Antarctic.
Mr. Speaker, Candace had the amazing opportunity to explore the other side of our planet through the popular Students on Ice program which organized a ship-based expedition for 70 university and high school students from across the world. An international team of educators, leaders, and innovators provided hands-on and inspiring educational activities on a daily basis.
Mr. Speaker, initiatives such as Students on Ice offer excellent opportunities for all youth. I hope that other young high school, college, and university students from Nunavut will apply to participate in this program to expand their knowledge and gain new global perspectives of our world, its wonders and its present and future challenges, especially as they relate to changes observed in our very own Nunavut environment.
Mr. Speaker, I encourage Nunavut youth to inform themselves of the Students on Ice program. The StudentsonIce.com website describes the program’s numerous expeditions, including blogs and videos and provides information on how to apply to participate in an expedition.
Mr. Speaker, I would like to congratulate Candace for completing her recent expedition with Students on Ice in the Antarctic and I heartily encourage her to continue the journey that she has begun with further studies in the Earth sciences. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
