Rice Strait

Rice Strait is a narrow waterway between Ellesmere Island's eastern coast and Pim Island in northern Canada's territory of Nunavut. It connects Rosse Bay on the north with Buchanan Strait to the south.[1]

The strait is named after Sergeant Baddeck, Nova Scotia), who was the photographer on Adolphus Greely's ill-fated Lady Franklin Bay Expedition, and also a correspondent with the New York Herald. He was the only Canadian on this United States Army Signal Corps sponsored expedition to the Arctic. Rice died on 9 April 1884, before the expedition's rescue.[2][3]
