More information about Final Jeopardy:
Devon Island, located in the far north of Canada’s territory of Nunavut, is Canada’s sixth-largest island. It has been inhabited in the past, with an outpost called Dundas Harbour set up in 1924 in an attempt to maintain a patrol presence in the area, but due to ice difficulties, the RCMP detachment there was moved to Ellesmere Island in 1951. Scientists often visit the island due to the area’s similarity to Mars.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $440 has been raised.)
