The unofficial results in the Canada's MOST Rider Friendly Community Contest are in!
It appears that in the west, Two Hills Alberta won out over Kaslo British Columbia by a small margin. The tally was 8664 to 8589.
By far this was the most aggressive of the two contests with over 30 lead changes between Two Hills and Kaslo.
In the east, Moncton New Brunswick won out over New Liskeard Ontario, 331 to 302.
If the results we have at the moment stand, then the following communities will be awarded $2,500 marketing packages:
Kaslo BC, New Denver BC, New Liskeard Ontario and Digby Nova Scotia.
Two Hills and Moncton will then go head to head in the final round of voting.
The winning community will be called Canada's MOST Rider friendly Community 2015.
They will win a $35,000 Marketing Campaign and the runner up community will win a $10,000 Marketing Campaign.
So which community is going to have a Welcome sign similar to these?
We find out on April 21st when the winners will be announced on YouTube!
