When Deputy Editor Rod Charles caught up with Bob McDonald, the TV personality talked about the beauty of Canada’s national parks — and why he sees them as being among the country’s greatest cultural symbols.

Charles: ”One thing that makes [McDonald’s] eyes light up is when he talks about Canada’s national parks. He’s had the opportunity to visit several in his career, including in 2012 when he travelled to Alberta as a guest speaker at the Jasper Dark Skies Festival. There he praised the beauty of the region and the educational value of the event, saying, ‘I think that’s an important lesson when you look at the dark skies, like we are in Jasper. You see that the earth is only one planet of a family of planets going around one star, that’s part of a huge galaxy that’s rotating through space, and that galaxy is only one of billions of other galaxies out there in an expanding universe, and even though we’re tiny, we know that. And that’s profound that we know our place.’”
