Meet the world’s first female combat general, Col. Jennie Carignan. Photographed for @macleansmag at the Canadian Armed Forces College in Toronto.
///
Later this month, the 47-year-old Carignan will be promoted to the rank of brigadier-general (a one-star general), earning the title of chief of staff of Army operations. Although there are other Canadian female generals, up to now they have risen from non-combatant disciplines such as intelligence, medicine or development aid. Carignan is the first woman in Canada—and so far as the Forces can determine, the first in the world—to rise to her rank from the combat arms trades. In the Canadian Army, women comprise just 2.4 per cent of regular force combat arms trades, compared to 14.8 per cent of the overall Army. Carignan is changing that statistic by increasing recruitment of women to combat roles, and she’s doing it her way, as a stereotype-defying mother of four

Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team member Dominic Cozzolino for Macleans magazine. 
Dominic suffered a compression fracture to his L1 vertebra during a hockey game as a kid. They call it a burst fracture, because the vertebra explodes. Bone fragments went into the spinal canal, which caused major nerve damage. He underwent an eight-hour spinal decompression surgery—and was told he had a 50-50 chance of ever walking again. It would depend on how his body reacted to the surgery and rehab. 
Anyone who’s watched Cozzolino these past seven years knows that his dogged determination has played a huge role in his astounding recovery. Not only can he walk, but he can skate—and he’s a forward on Team Canada’s Olympic-bound sledge hockey team. Read more about Dominic’s incredible story via the link in my bio
