Watch: Paulatuk sings Amazing Grace for wildfire-hit communities

People in Paulatuk have gathered to sing Amazing Grace in honour of NWT communities affected by wildfires.

Aaron Ruben shared this footage from the Beaufort Delta community.

“Prayers for everyone in the NWT that needs it, from everyone in Paulatuk,” he wrote.

Five of the territory’s communities are under evacuation orders. Thousands of people have been ordered to flee to Alberta.
