Hope still alive for Inukshuk of pucks

A local man’s dream might come true, if he can secure sponsorship as soon as possible.

Last December, Chris Brandmann asked permission from Fort St. John City Council, to build a six-foot tall Inukshuk – made entirely from hockey pucks. His artwork would be on display at the North Peace Arena during the 2010 Allan Cup and Olympic Torch Relay.

He initially asked council that the Inukshuk be freestanding. He said he didn’t want to glue the pucks together, so that he would qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records. But, due to liability issues, council denied that request and continued to negotiate with Brandmann.

At Monday night’s City Council Meeting, Council granted approval for Brandmann to construct the Inukshuk, providing he glue the pucks together and that he acquire funding to construct a display case for the structure. The Inukshuk will also be the property of Brandmann’s and that he is responsible for the removal of the structure when needed.

A glass case for the Inukshuk costs around $4,700.
