    No unusual sounds near Nunavut’s Fury and Hecla Strait, RCAF reports

    "The crew did not detect any surface or subsurface contacts"

    A CP-140 Aurora aircraft flew to the region under the mandate of “Operation LIMPID” and recorded no artificial noises emanating from the area, the Department of National Defence senior communications advisor, Ashley Lemire, said in a Nov. 3 email to Nunatsiaq News.

    “The air crew performed various multi-sensor searches in the area, including an acoustic search for 1.5 hours, without detecting any acoustic anomalies. The crew did not detect any surface or subsurface contacts,” the statement continued.
    Aggu MLA Paul Quassa rose in Nunavut’s legislature Nov. 3 to provide the DND’s update to members, but also called on Igloolik hunters to stay vigilant.
    According to Quassa’s original statements on the pinging sounds in the assembly Oct. 24 and Oct. 25, hunters reported a decrease in animal populations within the area of the sounds and suggested that the noise was driving them away.
    The sound was originally reported to community leaders in Igloolik by boaters passing through the Fury and Hecla Straits in June, who recorded the acoustic anomaly on sonar equipment.
