ZOOMER Magazine - - FROM THE EDITOR -

CANADA-HA-HA

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

TRIP TIP

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

GO WEST

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

SHED­DING LIGHT

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.
