For the Arctic’s most storied lodge, an era ends—but a new one may begin
By Katie Weaver
Back when Glenn Warner was a Mountie on a dog-team patrol through the Central Arctic, he passed through the small Inuit settlement of Bathurst Inlet and found his calling. His wife, Trish, fell in love with the place her first time seeing it, too. So in 1969, the couple did something new in the North: They launched an eco-tourism retreat. And even more audaciously, they brought on aboriginal partners. Two local Inuit families, the Kapolaks and Akoluks, became minority shareholders in the upstart Bathurst Inlet Lodge.
