COM­MENT I COVER VOTE

Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SPACE -

I want to tell you how much I en­joy your mag­a­zine. I started read­ing it about a year ago when my Grade 9 class com­peted in the Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic Chal­lenge. I didn’t win the con­test, but it made me re­al­ize how much more I wanted to learn.

Kelly Ruigrok Dun­nville, Ont. Can Geo Talks hosted the Great Cana­dian Na­tional Bird De­bate at the Cana­dian Mu­seum of Na­ture in Ot­tawa on Sept. 19 to help de­ter­mine Canada’s na­tional bird (see page 34). Here’s a se­lec­tion of com­ments shared on so­cial me­dia us­ing #Canad­abird.

#Snowyowl for #Canad­abird ... lots of Inuit le­gends about this ma­jes­tic, in­tel­li­gent bird. @May­or­madeleine [Madeleine Red­fern, mayor of Iqaluit]

Gray jay all the way! @El­iz­a­beth­may [leader, Green Party of Canada] And thanks to @Can­geo for spark­ing a great de­bate and im­por­tant conversati­on about #Canad­abird.

@cathm­ckenna [Min­is­ter of En­vi­ron­ment and Cli­mate Change]

We’re #Team­loon! Ca­noe­ing wouldn’t be the same with­out their calls. #Canad­abird @Cd­nen­cy­clo­pe­dia
