Our search for “The Beloved Symbol of Canada”

green-maple-leaves-wallpapersThrough the month of June, By George will be conducting a Canadiana contest to select the most-Canadian of symbols. It will be a head-to-head choice of 64 different items that are celebrated and treasured by Canucks.


On our By George Facebook page, we will be announcing the individual contests and allowing for our followers to comment on the selections. Should there be a compelling argument or overwhelming outcry about the choice of one of the symbols, or the other, By George will reserve the right to reverse the decision and go with our readership’s favourite. For example, in this week’s contest, there was the head-to-head decision of “Peace Tower” or “Northern Lights”. The winner: “Northern Lights” (as being a more significant symbol of Canadiana). Agree? Disagree? Let us know on our Facebook page – here.
