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]

Found my fave band on @Can­geo #Canada­songs map: Great Big Sea. @alan­tho mas­doyle @bob­hal­lett Proud @RCGS_SGRC Fel­low for @Petty hrmini­aqua —@melanieknight7

#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. Ken Hedges, Hon­orary Colonel (ret’d) Royal Cana­dian Med­i­cal Ser­vice Bar­rie, Ont.

Cor­rec­tions:

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.
