Bravo! Félicitation! Edmundston, New Brunswick
Congratulations to the folks in Edmundston, New Brunswick whose “Vivez Mieux” (Live Better) efforts were rewarded with a $100,000 natural playground in the CBC/Radio-Canada’s Live Right Now Campaign.CBC's quest to find 'The Live Right Now Capital of Canada" in early January, thousands of Canadians immediately responded. Communities, large and small, across Canada joined together to improve their overall health and quality of life. They ran, they walked, they worked out, they played games - and they did it together. What the CBC panel of judges looked for: "The Canadian community that most embodies the spirit of Live Right Now: a community where residents are motivated and supported to make healthier choices." And the winning team: Edmundston, New Brunswick, who embraced an amazing Vivez Mieux Vivre / Live Better campaign to get healthy and fit. Citizens of this winning city attended spin and zumba classes, played racket sports, jogged, skated, skied, played hockey and danced! Their hearty efforts racked up the points - and they've now won a custom-designed natural playground (valued at more than $100,000) for their home city, compliments of the Canadian Wildlife Federation , Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds and Parks Canada.
