Novem­ber/de­cem­ber 2018, Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic and spe­cial guest ed­i­tor Min­is­ter Catherine Mckenna look into cli­mate change and our en­vi­ron­ment

About a year ago, Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic re­ceived an un­usual in­vi­ta­tion. It came from Parks Canada, ask­ing if Aaron Kylie, the mag­a­zine’s ed­i­tor-in-chief, would join a trip to Labrador’s Torn­gat Moun­tains Na­tional Park. While such op­por­tu­ni­ties come along fairly rou­tinely, this one had a unique twist: among the small group of guests on the trip would be En­vi­ron­ment and Cli­mate Change Min­is­ter Catherine Mckenna. Get­ting a few min­utes with a fed­eral min­is­ter can be a chal­lenge, but the chance to spend days with one is es­pe­cially rare — so Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic jumped on it. Whether you agree or dis­agree with Min­is­ter Mckenna’s opin­ions, hope­fully we can all agree she’s ex­tremely knowl­edge­able about is­sues re­lat­ing to the en­vi­ron­ment, cli­mate change, wildlife, parks, the North and more. Coin­ci­den­tally, many of those sub­jects are top ar­eas of in­ter­est for Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic’s au­di­ence, so dur­ing that trip, Kylie floated the idea to Min­is­ter Mckenna of her act­ing as a guest ed­i­tor of an is­sue — an of­fer she ac­cepted. The Novem­ber/de­cem­ber 2018 is­sue is the re­sult of a months-long col­lab­o­ra­tion with Min­is­ter Mckenna to pro­vide a snap­shot of Canada’s en­vi­ron­ment, its pro­tected ar­eas and its stew­ards. Award-win­ning jour­nal­ist Ju­lian Brave Noise­cat ex­plores the Indige­nous Guardian pro­gram and how it’s help­ing man­age some of Canada’s pro­tected ar­eas, renowned marine ecol­o­gist Boris Worm re­flects on the state and suc­cess of Canada’s marine pro­tected ar­eas and Cana­dian pho­tog­ra­phers show a dis­tress­ing view of cli­mate change’s ef­fects across the coun­try. “Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic’s fo­cus on Canada’s nat­u­ral and cul­tural places links well with what we do,” says Mckenna. “And I’m ex­cited to share these sto­ries about Canada’s in­cred­i­ble nat­u­ral spa­ces and the peo­ple who pro­tect them.”
