Program: I Qanuq Isumavit? is a phone-in (What Do You Think?): IBC's only live production, the phone-in show enables the northern audience to discuss current issues and events in detail. Topics covered in the past included a wide range of “things on people’s minds” including parenting, health care, language, Inuit knowledge, climate change, and sled dog slaughter among them. Qanuq Isumavit invites viewers to participate by phoning or emailing - to ask questions, disagree with the guest’s view, offer a comment or just air their views.

Segment 1: The phone in show is about the 60’s dog team slaughter. To force relocation of the Inuit people into communities, the RCMP destroyed dog teams removing their main means of transportation.
