Cambridge Bay Family Wins Travel to Ottawa for Senators Game

January 26, 2006 – On January 26, 2006 Canadian North will send Cambridge Bay resident Gordon Bligh, his sons Douglas and Neil and his foster daughter, Rolonda Niptanatiak to the January 30th Ottawa Senators game. They are the first winners of the Canadian North’s Ottawa Senators Hockey Contest.

When Gordon’s wife Patti signed up for Canadian North’s AirMail email program she thought they’d be getting news about Canadian North’s seat sales and other great deals. Winning the contest last week was a bonus she only dreamed of.

Their Canadian North flight left Cambridge Bay on Thursday morning and arrives in Ottawa on January 27th. Because of the lengthy travel time required Mr. Bligh and his family will be away for a whole week. Those are serious hockey fans! They’ll enjoy complimentary accommodations at the Super 8 Motel on their way through Yellowknife and at Les Suites Hotel in Ottawa.

When asked about their win, Gordon’s wife Patti Bligh stated, “I’m thrilled for my family to experience an NHL game and Ottawa. This is an extra special trip because our son’s birthday falls during the trip and Rolonda has never left Cambridge Bay in her life.”

“I’d like to thank Canadian North for giving my kids this opportunity - it wouldn’t otherwise be possible.”

Mitch Priest, the new Canadian North base manager in Cambridge Bay said, “it was very exciting to share the good news that Canadian North would be sending them and 3 guests to Ottawa for a week.” Talk about making an impression in the community.

Over the course of the contest, Canadian North will present eight lucky winners with grand prize packages from the communities of Cambridge Bay, Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit. In total, 22 people will participate in the grand prizes. Contestants are entered through Canadian North’s AirMail program or in Iqaluit by listening to the radio for a chance to win. This is just another way that Canadian North continues to say thank you and reward their loyal customers.

Gordon Bligh and family will be arriving at the Ottawa Airport on Canadian North flight 438 on Friday January 27th, 2006 at 9:15 pm.

There's a Change in the Air

Canadian North is proud to unveil the second aircraft in our fleet to dawn the bold and vibrant look of our company. As a 100% northern owned and operated airline, our look is a reflection of the promise of the north, it’s strength, boldness and beauty. It is a symbol of our commitment and dedication to providing the best air travel possible for all northerners. With the completion of the second aircraft in our fleet to showcase the Canadian North brand, plans are continuing to have our entire line painted throughout the next two years. During regularly scheduled maintenance checks, our remaining aircraft will go through the two-week process of having more than 250 lbs of paint applied to them so they too can be a true reflection of the north. Canadian North's new Aurora class has top quality service.
