    Okay, here goes, might as well be transparent. I hope I don't get into trouble.

    Apparently there was a spelling mistake/dispute on the Inuvialuktun portion of the sign. The elders were not happy and decided to board it up. A decision is pending on when they'll put up a corrected and agreed upon version.

    Hope this helps.

    That only half answers it...kind of like how a politician speaks, so what did it actually say, spelling aside? And what do the elders want it to say?

    That reminds me, DisneyWorld is opening a ride called “The Road to Tuk”. It has motorcycles and mud with bears and mosquitos. For an additional payment you can get med evac via helicopter...

    Heading up to Tuk in July. I am sure the answer is buried in this discussion somewhere but where do I go to get a sticker when I get to Tuk? Trying to figure out whether I need to avoid Sat and/or Sunday if case the establishment is closed.

    I got my sticker at the store. And if you're inclined, this is a much better place to swim in the arctic than at the actual end of the road. It's a real beach style access, instead of the big breaker rocks.

    Thanks for the map! Looks like the northern store sells them and is open on Sun. Any idea what the ref to the RCMP outpost in relation to the stickers was about?

    Store where they sell stickers was closed when we were there, so I emailed the lady in charge and she gave me her address so I could mail her a check and a pre-paid self addressed envelope and she mailed me the stickers

    FYI
    Northern store has short hours. At the entrance to town theres now a “visitors center” and private RV park. The owner is Vince, he may be someone to talk to
