The awards ceremonies for the 17th National Edition of the Communities in Bloom program concluded over the weekend in Quebec City.
The Pomeroy Sport Centre and the city's walking trails caught the attention of judges, but they were apparently surprised by what can be grown in a so-called zone two community, resulting in the Edible Landscapes' Special mention.
Stratford and Goderich, Ontario were the winners in the large and small population Circle of Champions categories.
There are seven population categories for national award winners, but this year the only one from B.C. was Campbell River in the 20,001 to 50,000 category. The winner in the largest population category, for cities over 50 thousand, was London, Ontario.
