Goderich IS Hockeyville

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Huron County Community leads voting in nomination phase of Hockeyville contest

A sprited response from the entire community has Goderich in good shape to become Kraft Hockeyville 2012.

Goderich is Number One in the Kraft Hockeyville race -- at least so far.

The website krafthockeyville.cbc.ca says the drive to get 100 thousand dollars in arena upgrades and an NHL pre-season game at MRC has 1,738 members.

Area residents have also made over 21-hundred submissions of photos, videos and stories pointing out why we are Hockeyville.

Compare that to second-place West Kelowna BC with 522 members and almost 13-hundred submissions.

Three other Ontario communities -- Carleton Place, Kapuskasing and Stirling round out the top five with much lower numbers.

Voting for the finalists in each of five regions across the country starts at 9pm on Saturday March 3rd.
