The Year That Was: Comments from CSIA/CNSF Members

Patrick Walsh, Outdoor Canada (Outdoor Group Media)

The pandemic lockdown has certainly been challenging for my team and me at Outdoor Canada. We have only met in person three times since our offices were vacated in March, forcing us to rethink the enitre creative process of putting together a national magazine. But we have risen to the challenge, and have found ways to stay connected, and creative. If there is anything positive to come out of this, in fact, it has shown that we—and many others, of course—have the skills, imagination and drive to continue making a positive contribution to Canada’s outdoor community, despite the adversity. And as with everyone else once this is over, we will be all the stronger for it.
