Voting now open for City of Saint John Name the Plow contest

After a response of nearly 1,000 submissions, finalists for the City of Saint John’s first Name the Plow contest, in partnership with  97.3 The Wave, have been selected and voting is now open to the public.

“Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from residents, we have decided to double the number of plows that will be named this year, from four to eight," says Lisa Caissie, Director of External Relations. “The trucks cover all areas of the city – north, east, south and west – giving everyone a chance to see one in or near their neighbourhood this winter.”
