In Our Words

With 2018 ex­it­ing stage left and 2019 com­mand­ing the spot­light, I find my­self won­der­ing, do most Cana­di­ans still make New Year’s res­o­lu­tions? It’s been a long- stand­ing tra­di­tion for many, one in which honour­ing the res­o­lu­tions can ac­tu­ally be eas­ier than pre­par­ing the list of res­o­lu­tions in the first place. Do­ing so calls for a cer­tain amount of in­tro­spec­tion and self­aware­ness, an ad­mis­sion to your­self that you are not per­fect (in spite of what your ego is no doubt shout­ing in your ear in­ter­nally), and that there are cer­tain ar­eas of your life, or your ap­proach to life, that could do with some im­prove­ment. No mat­ter who you are, where you come from or what you do for a liv­ing, that type of self-hon­esty is never easy to achieve.

Shar­ing your quest for self-im­prove­ment with fam­ily mem­bers and friends can help you at­tain your ob­jec­tive... which brings me to the main point of this let­ter. As the new year un­folds, our ed­i­to­rial and art team will be look­ing for ways to grad­u­ally im­prove the over­all de­sign and read­abil­ity of the mag­a­zine, as well as the var­i­ous cat­e­gories of reader-writ­ten con­tent we put be­fore you. Rest as­sured, we al­ready know—and ap­pre­ci­ate—that both Our Canada and More of Our Canada are ex­tremely well re­ceived by our loyal read­er­ship, so we’re sim­ply talk­ing about a few de­sign and con­tent “tweaks.” And, since OC and MOC are your mag­a­zines, we would like you to be a part of this process of self-eval­u­a­tion and self-im­prove­ment. So, as 2019 dawns, kindly re­solve to email me your com­ments and sug­ges­tions for im­prove­ment. Happy New Year, ev­ery­one!
