Jason Palluq

Jason Palluq was born in 1960 near Clyde River. His testimony includes information about the move of his family to a place near the current community of Clyde River. He also describes an episode of dog shooting he witnessed as a child. While a man stopped for a while near the community with his dog team still harnessed, three of his dogs were shot by an RCMP officer. Jason remembers that the dog owner tried to talk back in Inuktitut. Jason was affected by this and was eager to describe the event to the commission.
