Love your magazine. The Canada 150 issue is particularly wonderful. Have to say I don’t recall ever laughing out loud as often as I did reading Arthur Black’s “The Funniest Country I Know.” Great humour and spot on. —Barbara Brayshaw
I usually leaf through Zoomer magazine and possibly read one or two things. I always check the classifieds for the travel I will never afford (you need to have more for the Zoomers with less substantial means).
This last issue, Canada 150, however was a wonderfully entertaining and informative cover-to-cover read with insight and humour. An hour well spent. Thank you. —Jim Small
Loved your Canada 150 edition! Really enjoyed all the articles. Wanted to mention to David Israelson who wrote “In Their Footsteps” that there are two wonderful First Nation attractions he missed. Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southern Alberta, and there is Wanuskewin Heritage Park, National Historic Site of Canada just outside Saskatoon. They are working toward UNESCO World Heritage status.
Both are excellent. Come visit the West! —Jan Coleman
As an avid reader of your magazine and also a former merchant marine sailor, I took great interest in “This Is Us.” But unfortunately I could not place the lighthouse on page 120. It does look similar to the one at Peggy’s Cove in style and build, but your article links it to “Rankin’s Point,” Cape Breton. There is also a Rankin Point in B.C. but no such lighthouse. Exhaustive web searches have not yielded any results.
I’d love to get the name of the photographer or a copy of this picture plus a real location, if possible. Many thanks. —Endrick Kreuter
EDITOR’S NOTE You have a sharp eye and are correct: the photo is indeed Peggy's Cove. The photographer is Shaun L., as credited on the page, and we purchased it through Getty Images. All images in this story were chosen to reflect the excerpts from Canadian literature that spoke to an aspect of our country. The Road to Rankin’s Point is the book from which the words used on this photo was credited, hence the confusion.
