Vote early vote often: North Island vies for fishing crown

Have you voted yet? Not for a federal candidate in the upcoming election, but for Port Hardy as Ultimate Fishing Town Canada.

Have you voted yet? Not for a federal candidate in the upcoming election, but for Port Hardy as Ultimate Fishing Town Canada.

That title is up for grabs from the World Fishing Network through online voting and Port Hardy needs the support of all North Islanders in every community to regain its first-place position. Port Hardy was holding onto first place in the Western Canada division as recently as Monday this week, but at this writing had dropped into second, just a few votes behind Port Renfrew. Campbell River sits in third.

If Port Hardy can garner the most votes by May 3 they will move onto the next round of voting for the nationwide title.

With some of the best fishing opportunities on the coast, this is a title the North Island has every right to claim.

And while Port Hardy is the town named on the ballot, a vote for Port Hardy is really a vote for the entire North Island region because when one community benefits, all communities benefit. This is an opportunity to introduce more people to the North Island and all it has to offer.

So support the North Island and get out there and vote. Register online at wfnfishingtown.ca/town/porthardy-bcand mark your ballot. Then spread the word to your friends near and far to add their votes to the effort. You can vote four times a day, every day until May 3.
