So You Think You Can Garden (Contest?)

I was excited to see that Canadian Gardening magazine is running an online contest dubbed “So You Think You Can Garden” on their online site canadiangardening.com.  Upon further investigation I learned that the prize is $500 and a requirement to blog on their site once a week for 6 months.  This sounds like a minimum salary job and not a contest.

Contest or cheap labour?  You decide for yourself:

Niagara Falls slips to 5th in Monopoly Voting

mr_monopoly_largeI won’t argue that Cornwall has a magnificent water tower; that Beauceville has delicious poutine; and I’m sure Kenora (formally named Rat Portage) is actually very nice; but is it possible that these cities will be added to Monopoly Canadian Edition instead of Niagara Falls?

When we first posted about the vote, Niagara Falls moved to second place behind Banff, and was positioned to take one of the two available spots. There are only 22 days left to spread the word to all your friends to nominate Niagara Falls.  Spread the word with Facebook and Twitter!

To vote enter “Niagara Falls, Ontario, CA” in the nominate box on this page: www.monopolyvote.ca/en_CA/world (note: Firefox may not work properly)
