In a world where we have become complacent or cynical regarding companies’ greed and indifference at the expense of the employee and customer, it is very rare to find a situation that causes you to stop and take note.

Recently, one small company with a very large heart gave cause to stop and realize there are indeed companies that care. This impressive company is Air North, located in Whitehorse.

At the end of November, we suffered the unexpected loss of our sister.

Although born and raised in Alberta, Whitehorse became her home for over 30 years, and she was proud to also be a member of the Air North family for over a decade.

She would often comment about her time with Air North and the people within; however, we never truly comprehended the depths of the organization’s compassion, employee loyalty and overall belief in human kindness until her passing.

We experienced some of this caring by the assistance provided to us by the people of Air North, which was above and beyond anything we could have imagined.

In addition, the manner in which the staff opened their hearts to us showed us the compassion and friendly warmth of the people of Whitehorse and the employees of Air North.

The people of Whitehorse should be proud of the exceptional work done by Joseph T. Sparling and his Air North team.

This organization is an outstanding ambassador for the Yukon.
