In Our Words
Before we launched More of Our Canada in September 2008, we asked readers of Our Canada what they would like to see in the new magazine. The overwhelming response was “more of the same.”
So, if the Remembrance content in the OC October-november issue struck a chord, you’ll appreciate “O Canada,” “Camp X” and “A Fallen Soldier” on pages 16, 40 and 43 respectively. As Canada’s 150th anniversary year draws to a close, we’re pleased to present another story associated with the national milestone: read all about Denise Dow’s “Strong & Free” RV tour on page 8. And Our Travels once again takes you to intriguing places— this time, it’s the peaks of Manitoba (page 20). And here I thought Manitoba was completely flat!
Beginning here and moving forward in every issue of Our Canada and More, we’re changing up Caption Corner slightly, by asking you to submit the funny photos—and we’ll supply the funny captions. Also, due to changes in scheduling, it’s not always going to be possible for us to provide you with What Is It? answers in the subsequent issue. But fear not— What Is It? will continue to make occasional appearances in print and thrive on the OC Facebook page. And if you need an answer to a What Is It mystery right away, just drop me a line at the email address below, and I’ll let you know what our readers had to say. The answer to last issue’s What is It? is on page 14, and the revamped Caption Corner is on page 15. Finally, the ever-popular Pet Corner is now a full page—check it out on page 65.
Thank you for caring so much about our shared past—and for embracing change in all its forms.
