• FAVOURITE PHOTO 2014 
This is the image that stands out for me this year. Not only does it bridge the generations of Canadian veterans, but it reminds me that unless Canada and the world change, Connor may wind up a casualty of war himself one day. September 10, 2014 

Seven-year-old Connor Chaulk checks out names on the rows of veteran graves at Brookside Cemetery candle-light vigil held to mark the anniversary of the start of the Second World War. Connor doesn't have any veteran relatives in Brookside but made a point of remembering his great grandfather, a Second World War veteran buried in Stonewall's cemetery.
  • People have told me over the years that rocker Neil Young disliked having his photo taken. I took this image of Young during his Honour The Treaties tour news conference in January at the Centennial Concert Hall. Young answered a few questions and then paused, stared at the photographers and gave me this one-on-one stare .The four-date tour raised money and awareness for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund to help fight for treaty rights in the development of the Northern Alberta oil sands.

    Dauphin's Countryfest a good time, no matter how much it rains. The culture of Canada's longest-running country-music festival isn't just one of Party, Sleep, Repeat, to quote someone's relentlessly on-point tank top. It's also a culture rooted in community -- a fact that was underscored during a weekend of never-ending rain. (Boris Minkevich / Winnipeg Free Press)
