Abstract: WATERSHED is a new magazine which aims to focus on "the conditions and potentials of the Prairies, and of Western Canada in general."
According to the editorial in the first issue (November 1983), "we think that the Canadian Prairies have a unique history, a unique climate, and a unique potential. But we think of this potential in terms other than megaprojects nd exploitation. Along with many Westerners, we'd prefer to view it in terms of human potential and in terms of co-operation." The editorial goes on to describe WATERSHED as being a "two-way magazine" which wants readers to play a large part in determining the content.
The Magazine will regularly feature articles on farming and gardening: food; housing appropriate to Prairie condiitons; energy, social issues affecting Prairies; entertainment; and "famous people you never heard of."
