This week, the Berger Inquiry Exhibit will be displayed in the main foyer of Aurora Campus in Inuvik. The exhibit is a “then and now” look at the Berger Inquiry and its impact on both the north and Canada as a whole. The purpose of the exhibit is to generate debate and critical thinking among students about issues raised by the Berger Inquiry and by the inquiry’s legacy.
Curator Drew Ann Wake was a CBC reporter assigned to the inquiry. The Berger Inquiry broke new ground in the 1970s by visiting more than 30 communities in the Mackenzie Valley and Beaufort Sea area that would be affected by the potential pipeline, and by inviting presentations by Aboriginal and environmental groups.
An Exhibit Opening was held in the main foyer of Aurora Campus from 7-9 pm on Tuesday 5 November. The public is welcome to visit the exhibit for the rest of the week.
