A VISIT TO THE NORTH POLE

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

— Vic­to­ria’s own Trevor Bald­win has ex­pe­ri­enced some­thing very few peo­ple have — a trip to the North Pole. As an en­gine room tech­ni­cian aboard the CCGS Terry Fox, Bald­win was a part of a six-week Arc­tic ex­pe­di­tion that be­gan on Aug. 8. After 19 days, he and the crew ar­rived at the North Pole. Although it is not known if Bald­win got to meet the jolly old elf in red on his ven­ture, he did get this photo taken by Santa’s work­shop. The Fox was the sec­ond ves­sel to ar­rive, be­hind the CCGS Louis S. St-Lau­rent. The crews from both ships took part in hockey and po­lar golf at the pole, as well as com­plet­ing the Ice Bucket Chal­lenge for ALS.
