New magazine puts the "hot" topic of climate change in the hands of Canadians

    OTTAWA, April 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The launch of Checkerspot magazine puts
climate change in the hands of Canadians. This newest publication from the
Canadian Wildlife Federation is Canada's first magazine devoted entirely to
climate change.
    Checkerspot will empower readers to take action in their own lives by
exploring lifestyle choices, including emerging ideas on food, shelter and
transit options, as well as by reviewing consumer products that can contribute
to a climate-friendly way of life.
    Through first-rate writing, photography and illustration, Checkerspot
will engage and inform readers about developments in science, and current
ideas and innovations that could be part of the solution. By exploring a new
way of thinking, a new way of living and a new way forward, Checkerspot
magazine will provoke discussion about how to live responsibly in a
climate-changing world.
    "Climate change is real and Canadians want to move forward and take
action in their everyday lives," says CWF's executive vice president, Colin
Maxwell. "Checkerspot will put climate change solutions in their hands, in
their own backyards, through simple lifestyle choices that will make a world
of difference for the environment, for wildlife and for future generations."
    Checkerspot, named after a butterfly whose ranges are shifting as a
result of global warming, aims to lift the issue of climate change from
abstraction and place it where it needs to be - in the minds and on the lips
of Canadians.
    Checkerspot magazine is a free, biannual publication available through
CWF. To learn more about Checkerspot magazine and to order your free copy,
