Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark joined his federal counterpart MP Gord Brown today in urging area residents to help Seeley’s Bay land the big one.
A campaign is currently underway to have the village in Leeds and Thousand Islands Township declared the Ultimate Fishing Town in Canada. Seeley’s Bay is one of 10 Canadian cities in the final online vote, which ends on September 28.
The title-winning community will receive a $25,000 prize to be used for local improvement projects and will also be the subject of a 30-minute feature on the World Fishing Network, which is sponsoring the contest.
The feature has the potential to reach more than 42 million sports fishermen across Canada and the United States.
Seeley’s Bay is one of four Ontario communities on the list of 10 finalists, but the only one in Eastern Ontario.
