Winter has made her way into our lives reminding us of the power of Mother Nature. I feel fortunate that I do not need to brave the extreme cold that many in Alberta, Yukon, central British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut and Northwest Territories are dealing with. At the same time winter has made her mark here as well.
I like to think of it as a time for us to reflect on our relationship with nature and the respect that we must give to our environment. Maybe our experience with some of the extremes of winter is one of the factors that make Canadians what they are.
