2014 A Year in Review for Canada

Time Magazine, MacLeans, Forbes and many more annually put together a review of the year. Together with photos, you can reflect on 2014 – Who got married, who had a baby, and who died.  Who is the richest, most beautiful, most famous – or infamous! News, highlights, sports events, population, employment and so much more.

Canada generally has a warm and fuzzy reputation globally; ours is the flag the represents peace – the friendly country. But, we certainly make the news. Good, bad, sad and sometimes downright ugly – Oil prices, oil sands, pipelines, and crude made the headlines every week running, without fail. Let’s face it, ours is a country built on natural resources.

First Nation’s rights and the ensuing land claims was right up there on page one, as was our foreign relations, in particular with China. We had some unsettling moments, one which saw us lose our own Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, and resulting in an increase in security at every Remembrance Day Ceremony across the nation.

There were other tragedies too. Train derailments, a few scandals here and there and then there was Rob Ford (depends on how you look at that one). But there were many good news stories too! The news on everything from winning the war on Ebola in Canada to climate change, clean energy to Tim Horton’s coffee (now dark roast don’t you know),our hockey team won gold at the Olympics and the Giller prize winner (by the way, it went to Sean Michaels for his novel Us Conductors).

Each year the Globe and Mail publishes the results of its Year In Review Survey. Tell us what was your 2014 like?
