Song map sen­ti­ments

All the songs listed on the map (“The Great Cana­dian Song Map: Road Trip Edition,” July/au­gust) are great, but “This Is My Canada,” writ­ten in 1992 by Jeanette Arse­nault, should have been in­cluded. It’s in­clu­sive of the en­tire coun­try and pa­tri­otic. S.L. Curle Ed­mon­ton

Why was Neil Young and not Ian Tyson cred­ited with “Four Strong Winds”?

Jim Pal­ma­teer Toronto

In so­lic­it­ing songs for the map, we made no re­stric­tions about the ver­sions of songs that could be sub­mit­ted. If some­one chose Neil Young’s take on “Four Strong Winds,” then, we re­spected that choice. We did, how­ever, nod to the debt owed to Tyson by any­one who cov­ers the song by plac­ing it near Longview, Alta., where he has a ranch. —Ed.

Cli­mate changer

Thank you for “‘It’s been rain­ing! In the High Arc­tic!’ ” (July/au­gust), which laid out for me the se­ri­ous­ness of our warm­ing cli­mate. I have been a doubter about cli­mate change, but not now. When there is a chance that there may be no per­ma­nent ice left by 2030, that is a se­ri­ous game changer. I do sug­gest that those ter­ri­fy­ing num­bers be re­peated as of­ten as pos­si­ble. Maybe more peo­ple like my­self will change their at­ti­tudes about cli­mate change.

Our coun­try, your coun­try

I loved the Johnny Canuck “Our Coun­try” story in the July/au­gust is­sue ( right). When I lived in White­horse, the Demp­ster High­way was my most beloved spot when the late fall colours were out and the cari­bou were on the move. Heide Schuetz Burns Lake, B.C.

Con­grats, Julie Payette!

In July, Julie Payette was named the next Gov­er­nor Gen­eral of Canada. Here’s our top com­ment from Face­book. Bonus, she can fly her­self around the coun­try! How cool is that? The Queen (a WWII me­chanic) will be proud, I’m sure. You go, girl! Rose­mary Kohr Fred­er­ic­ton

Cor­rec­tions:

Wol­las­ton Lake is lo­cated in north­east­ern, not north­west­ern, Saskatchewan, as it was de­scribed in “Know the North” (“The Ex­pe­di­tions,” July/ Au­gust). In “Fea­tured fel­low” (Your so­ci­ety), Jes­sica Lind­say Phillips and fel­low Ex­plor­ers Club mem­bers doc­u­mented the tat­toos of 186 women of the Chin tribe, not 136.
