Locale – Spring 2018
The spring 2018 issue of Locale features places and owners with a stake in the future of recommendations outlined the House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development’s report, Preserving Canada’s Heritage: The Foundation for Tomorrow. These are places that a mature regime for historic places needs to recognize and target for positive investment. Take Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump and historic places that now house craft breweries as examples. In Cliffside Stories: How Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Feeds Today’s Generations, writers Todd Kristensen and Mike Donnelly explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site’s significance to people today. Freelance writer Jordan Duff’s collection of breweries that have set up shop in historic places, outlined in Brewed in Heritage, further demonstrates how maintaining historic elements add significant value to a business. Finally, this issue includes a special piece on, for some, a controversial topic: urban exploration. In Exploring the Hidden Past, National Trust staff member Katrina Guerin dives into this topic with an urban explorer and photographer, who gives valuable insight into this community.
