Port Alberni – The Ultimate Fishing Town
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Canadian community more passionate about fishing than Port Alberni, and right now they’re in a race to be named Canada’s Ultimate Fishing Town.

The World Fishing Network is holding a nation-wide contest based on a voting system. The winning town will receive a $25,000 community donation to be used for enhancement initiatives. With steelhead, sockeye, chinook, coho salmon, halibut, ling cod and rock fish, there’s no shortage of abundance in the waters around Vancouver Island’s protected inlet town.
Voting ends in little more than five days, so get your vote in now and help bring some much-needed funds to the community of Port Alberni.
2. I’m once again fundraising for the BC-SPCA’s Paws For A Cause, aiming to raise $2,000 by September 12, 2010. As of today, I’ve already reached 25% of my goal and have only a few weeks left! Please consider donating to my effort and support this worthwhile cause.
