A Community In Bloom
With all the big oil sands developments just a short jaunt up the highway here, many people here are only too well aware that to rabid environmentalists out there surely this community is viewed by them as the anti-Christ. Which is why I find it heartening to see that Fort Mac is among the 5 finalists for this year's Communities in Bloom. I'm quite familiar with the Ontario contenders of course, having been to them quite a few times. Kawartha Lakes is actually quite close to where I grew up. Ontario sentimentality aside though I think that Fort Mac, despite how it is often portrayed in the media, has this competition hands down.
