missing stories: government slaughter of Inuit dogs

The story (a seemingly pieced-together one) is half a century old but this is the first I've heard of it. It has to do with the (enforced) transition from nomadic to settlement life Baffin Island Inuit went through in the 1950s and 60s, and the role of government and sled dogs in that shift. This Canadian Press story doesn't offer a lot of information but it's enough to get my back up and to make me want to investigate further.
