Polar Bears are magnificent animals that are unfortunately becoming more and more endangered due to global warming and our poor environment preservation habits. Luckily, Canada is home to 13 out of the world's 19 Polar Bear populations remaining on this planet, which gives us the perfect opportunity to see them while we still can.
There's a bay located in Northern Quebec called Ungava Bay and it's home to some pretty magnificent sights, including polar bears.
This bay is almost too gorgeous to be real, but it actually does exist at the Northern point of Quebec's Nunavik region between Quebec and Baffin Island!
Great Canadian Wildlife Adventures offers accessible tours of this magical area for anyone and everyone looking to explore the beauty of Canada. Their tours are run by knowledgable Inuit guides who will take visitors to the main spots in the area by boat.
The tour will last several days and you'll be able to see an abundance of rare birds flying far above, Musk-Ox herds roaming through the tundra landscape, and of course Polar Bears in their natural habitats.
During the summer months Polar Bears will come up to the shores of Ungava Bay to wait until the ice returns. August and September are also the best months to see displays of the magnificent Northern Lights!
These tours are not meant just for seasoned hikers and explorers, anyone interested in seeing the beauty of this land is encouraged to come, as their is barely any hiking involved and the camps are extremely comfortable!
While there's a myriad of possible reasons as to why Trudeau is ahead in the province, his handling of the pandemic could be the biggest. Among the Quebecers polled, 46% believed that health care is the most pressing issue in the upcoming election and 53% said the current prime minister "has performed well on pandemic management."

"We, the undersigned, demand that the Government of Quebec publicly reject, as of now, the idea of a mandatory vaccination passport and that it commit itself to do like the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has done, that is to say, prohibit the obligation to present a vaccination passport in order to attend certain events and practice certain activities," the petition states.
Samson, a former Coalition Avenir Québec member who switched sides in June, held a press conference about the petition alongside Conservative Party of Quebec leader Eric Duhaime on August 12. They explained that the party had already collected 133,000 signatures on a previous petition that did not meet the criteria of the National Assembly.
"We reviewed the wording [...] So we're going to ask these hundreds of thousands of people to re-sign their petition on the National Assembly website, and we're going to invite Quebecers who don't agree with the vaccine passport to come forward as well," Samson said.
The petition, which was posted to the National Assembly website on August 12, had garnered more than 75,000 signatures at the time this article was published.
Mary Simon's approval rating is lower in Quebec compared to the rest of Canada, a poll released Wednesday showed, because the new governor general can't speak French.
An Angus Reid Institute poll of 2,049 Canadians found only 49% of Quebecers approve of her appointment compared to 74% of respondents in the rest of the country.
"Despite being from Nunavik (the Inuit homeland in Northern Quebec), and having been awarded the [province's] highest distinction, many Quebecers remain unconvinced Mary Simon is the best choice for governor general due to her lack of fluency in French," stated the Angus Reid Institute.
"Support is cleaved along linguistic divides in the only majority Francophone province in Canada," it continued, as only 40% of Quebecers whose first language is French approve of her appointment compared to 81% of English speakers.
Though Simon, the country's first Indigenous governor general, is not currently fluent in French, she has promised to learn, Angus Reid stated.
