Hockey fans in the North form a group to get Montréal Canadiens games broadcast in French

In the 1970s, Bell Canada had recruited a number of French-speaking Quebecers to build the infrastructure needed in Frobisher Bay, Northwest Territories (now Iqaluit, Nunavut).

This group of young Quebecers missed watching Hockey Night in Canada and ended up founding the Association des francophones de Frobisher Bay.

The Association has since expanded and changed names twice to reflect its changing society. Today the Association des francophones du Nunavut has a thriving radio station and community centre, and a newspaper headed by an editorial committee.
