The New Northwest Passage
A voyage to the frontline of climate change

Cameron Dueck

The Open Passage Expedition successfully sailed through the Northwest Passage during the summer of 2009. The crew not only succeeded in sailing some of the most dangerous waters in the world, but also learned more about the people and their land. The Arctic is garnering global attention because climate change is melting its sea ice at a rapid pace, affecting the communities and the wildlife they rely on for food and livelihood. The crew of the Silent Sound set off from Victoria, BC. Four months and four days later they docked in Halifax, on the opposite side of Canada, with a tale to tell.
