When Saskatoon-based writer Candace Savage was a child, she always kept a jar of spiders on the bedside table or a box of ants in the back porch. “I have long been fascinated by the leggy strangeness of insects and other small creatures,” she says. “But when I recently turned my attention to bees, I began to understand that insects are actually life-sustaining.” In her story about a planned park to host bees and other pollinators in Guelph, Ont., Savage explains that whatever happens to pollinating insects also has repercussions for humans.
