Ejetsiak Peter was born in 1937 in the middle of Qikiqtaaluk, in Natsilik. He now lives in Cape Dorset (Kinngait). His testimony includes information about the slaughter of his own dogs. While he was working, his favorite dog and his lead dog were killed. After that, he was left with nothing and was unable to purchase a snowmobile. He says that RCMP officers were not the only ones who killed dogs, and that social workers were also involved. He regrets that the commission was not held earlier because a lot of dog owners have passed away. He was assigned by the RCMP to shoot dogs and had a chance to discuss the issue with one of them.
