The Jerry Cans - Arnalukaq

The Jerry Cans - Arnalukaq

The Jerry Cans from Iqaluit release 'Arnalukaq', a call to all the women in the Arctic who have been through — or are in — abusive relationships to remind them that they are beautiful. These situations are far too common in Nunavut, and The Jerry Cans take a firm stance against violence while encouraging young people to strive for healthy relationships. This song is also dedicated to all of our daughters to remind them that they are beautiful, and always will be – no matter what the circumstance. This song is ALSO dedicated to men of all ages who should be raised to respect their partners, to stand up to violence, abuse and harassment, and to never think any form of abuse or violence is acceptable.
