Pre­sent­ing the win­ning images from CPAC and Cana­dian Geo­graphic’s democ­racy-themed photo com­pe­ti­tion

Now more than ever be­fore, we rec­og­nize that democ­racy is pre­cious but frag­ile, even in ma­ture democ­ra­cies like Canada.” So said Cather­ine Cano, pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager of the Ca­ble Pub­lic Af­fairs Chan­nel (CPAC), at the un­veil­ing of CPAC and Cana­dian Geo­graphic’s Route 338 Gi­ant Floor Map of Canada’s fed­eral elec­toral dis­tricts last fall. That map is now tour­ing schools across the coun­try, en­gag­ing stu­dents of all ages in dis­cus­sions about democ­racy, cit­i­zen­ship, gov­ern­ment and hu­man rights. At the same time, we chal­lenged all Cana­di­ans to think about the geog­ra­phy of democ­racy by en­ter­ing the Show Us Your Rid­ing photo com­pe­ti­tion. Af­ter iden­ti­fy­ing their rid­ing on the in­ter­ac­tive, on­line ver­sion of the Route 338 map (route338.ca), our Photo Club mem­bers were en­cour­aged to head out into their com­mu­ni­ties and cap­ture images that spoke to the rid­ing’s unique history, land­marks, flora and fauna, cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties and, of course, how democ­racy is man­i­fested there. We re­ceived hun­dreds of great sub­mis­sions, but the images fea­tured here rep­re­sent the best of the bunch as cho­sen by our judges: David Lauer, se­nior com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager with CPAC, Jenny Chew, Cana­dian Geo­graphic’s graphic de­signer, and An­drew Meade, a pho­to­jour­nal­ist with the Hill Times.
