With a heavy heart, retired Anglican priest Mike Gardener is preparing to leave Iqaluit after a lifetime of work in the Arctic.
“It’s not my choice to leave,” says the 85-year-old.
After 61 years of life on Baffin Island and more than 41 years of work with the Anglican church in Kimmirut, Cape Dorset, Pangnirtung and Iqaluit, Gardener is moving to Ottawa next week.
His wife, Margaret, is moving into a special facility for Alzheimer’s patients.
