Where will you be watching the Big Decision?

“Where are you going to be watching the show?” A question Carol Dirom has heard for the past several weeks

“Where are you going to be watching the show?”

That’s a question Carol Dirom has heard for the past several weeks as people gear up to watch the Big Decision, a CBC show that will, on April 2, showcase Hardy Buoys Smoked Fish Inc.

“It’s much like a playoff hockey game — they’re looking for ways to spend the evening with friends and family in a festive atmosphere,” said Dirom who, along with hubby Bruce, owns the Port Hardy processing plant that’s in financial trouble.

The Big Decision brought Arlene Dickinson, of Dragon’s Den fame, to Port Hardy to see if she could help.

Part of the show revolved around the Big Community Event that drew thousands to the Civic Centre,  Feb. 26.

There are several places around town to watch Monday’s show, and many of the establishments will be featuring Hardy Buoy products.

The Big Decision starts at 9 p.m., April 2.
