In Our Words

More of Our Canada - - Contents - Gary Ge­orge, gary_ ge­orge@ rd. com

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.
