I Great Canadian Song Map In February 2017, Canadian Geographic launched its interactive Great Canadian Song Map ( right; maps.canadiangeographic.ca/ songmap), a project that aims to plot as many songs about Canada as possible in time for the country’s 150th birthday. We asked readers to help us populate the map, and they responded enthusiastically, submitting their favourite tunes through our online form as well as Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #Canadasongs.
Cool! Wonder how many #Canadasongs @Cangeo has added are also on the Great Trail? Seems one’s missing ’round SWEETGRASS, y’all (hint hint) ... —@paulbrandt [Paul Brandt, Canadian country music artist]

#Canadasongs “Backyard” by Good Lovelies is about Toronto. “Auyuittuq Sunrise” by Sultans of String has no lyrics but it’s so joyful you can imagine them up in Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island dancing and fiddling. Nancy Bennett —via Facebook Amazing. I have a set of eight CDS that I have been compiling for years. Almost 150 Songs from Newfoundland to the territories. So many great songs about Canada.

Here it is, Ken!
Now in my 80s and the last remaining member of the four-man party that completed the first crossing of the Arctic Ocean by dogsled, I look forward to your March/april issue and its North Pole feature. My best wishes to your contributors and to those whose dedication and skill offer this magazine to all who appreciate the perspectives contained in its pages.

In “Shale Game” [January/february], Sherbrooke Lake is incorrectly labelled as Yoho Lake on the map on page 53. In “Harvey wants half,” the marker for the Flathead Valley on the map on pages 44 and 45 should have been located slightly to the east.
