Nunavut's Baffinland iron ore mine lays off nearly 600 employees

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we looked at the news that Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation has laid off nearly 600 contract workers in Nunavut.

So far, the news has barely registered outside of local news, despite the number of layoffs amounting to the one-day loss of 3% of all jobs available in the northern territory.
