Do you love to play at Canada Day?

Show us your spirit

Do you have what it takes to be our Canada Day poster person?

Do you love to go all-out when it comes to celebrating Canada Day?

Do you have scads of flags, posters, capes and all sorts of Canadiana?

Are you willing to wear all of it at once and pose for a Parksville Qualicum Beach News photographer?

The News is looking for just such an individual — young or old — to appear in our July 1 Canada Day paper.

We want to show the community what a real Canada Day fanatic looks like and what it takes for them to be one too.

So, before June 20, call News editor Steven Heywood at 250-248-4341 or e-mail him at editor@pqbnews.com, and start showing off your love of all things Canadian.

The News will choose one person to be our Canada Day poster child, who will help us show our readers what it means to be a true Canadian.
