STATEMENT ON GETTING OUT THE VOTE FOR LAWRENCETOWN
March 31, 2010
OTTAWA, ON - March 31, 2010 - Greg Kerr, Member of Parliament for West Nova, made a statement in the House of Commons on getting out the vote for Lawrencetown’s bid for CBC’s Kraft Hockeyville 2010.
Last week I stated how excited the folks in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia were when their bid for CBC’s Kraft Hockeyville made the top 12.
This national competition started with over 500 entries, so making the top 12 was a great accomplishment for Lawrencetown, a wonderful little community of fewer than 700 people.
However, that accomplishment has been topped. I am pleased to say that Lawrencetown is now one of the 5 finalists competing for the Hockeyville title.
I am encouraging anyone who is not already committed to support Lawrencetown by taking the time to vote through CBC Sports online and by phone.
Voting ends tonight at midnight. The winner will be announced this Saturday during Hockey Night in Canada.
As I said before, I wish all the contending communities well, but I look forward to Lawrencetown claiming the Hockeyville title.”
