A group of 20 Canadian and foreign tourists and their guides stuck on an ice floe off Baffin Island in Nunavut all made it back to shore and waited most of the day before being airlifted to safety by military crews. A day earlier, the tour group was set adrift when a 50-kilometre long slab of ice broke away from shore and floated several kilometers out to sea, but shifting winds pushed it back to shore. The tour was led by Arctic Kingdom Expeditions. Company president Graham Dickson explained how the ice broke away. (The tour group was made up of Canadians, Americans, an Australian and a Jordainian.)
