Trash talk

Ithink a doc­u­men­tary di­rected at ev­ery class­room and house­hold in Canada re­gard­ing this prob­lem (“Trash Na­tion,” May/june) would be a wakeup call for all of us. Some­thing has to be done sooner rather than later to change our thinking about con­sump­tion and dis­posal.

Su­san Lind­say Lon­don, Ont.

I am sur­prised that the ar­ti­cle did not dis­cuss en­ergy re­cov­ery as an op­tion to fill­ing land­fill sites. Look at Mis­sis­sauga’s ex­pe­ri­ence and land­fills in Scan­di­navia.

Michael Szul Toronto

The District of Muskoka has done a rea­son­able job of try­ing to col­lect and re­cy­cle solid waste, but it could be bet­ter. We used to be al­lowed to scav­enge the scrap metal at the trans­fer sta­tion, as well as wood and items from the elec­tron­ics piles. If they al­lowed us to do that again, less new junk would be pur­chased from China and our old stuff would get a sec­ond life.

Trump trou­ble

I will never go in­side a Trump ho­tel nor eat at one, ever (“Making ho­tels great again,” Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic Travel, Sum­mer). I don’t care if it’s the only ho­tel in town, I will go to another town.

No, thank you, Robin

It was pretty cool to see this on the magazine shelf. Thanks to @Can­geo for in­clud­ing me in the spe­cial ur­ban is­sue (May/june)! Grab a copy! #ur­ban­ism —@Robin­mazumder [Robin Mazumder, Dis­cov­ery In­ter­view, May/june 2017]

St. Mary’s suc­cess

St Mary’s (“We were here first,” May/june, above right) uti­lized @war­rior­sat­work in part­ner­ship with @jedinews. En­cour­ag­ing to see them fea­tured in @Can­geo #ecdev —@war­rior­sat­work [Work­ing­war­riors & NAIW]

Correction­s:

In “Ge­og­ra­phy’s ris­ing stars” (Your So­ci­ety, May/june), the Ot­tawa venue for the last round of the Can Geo Chal­lenge fi­nals was iden­ti­fied as the Cana­dian Mu­seum of Na­ture. It oc­curred at the Cana­dian War Mu­seum. In “Canada’s best is­land get­aways” ( Cana­dian Ge­o­graphic Travel, Sum­mer), a typo placed John James Audubon’s Grand Manan Is­land, N.B., re­search in 1933. He vis­ited in 1831.
