Our city is full of remarkable people with interesting stories.

Everyone knows a great person with a great story. 

So, our concept is simple. Find amazing people in our community with great stories to tell and share those stories with everyone else. 

What kinds of stories are we looking to share? We are looking for:

  • heroes
  • philanthropists
  • innovators
  • volunteers
  • good neighbours
  • visionaries
  • donors
  • adventurers
  • veterans 
  • or anyone you think is a great person with a unique, positive story 

The stories don’t have to be new. They can be something shared from the past. Stories can be from yesterday, last year or 50 years ago — as long as the story is connected to a person in our community.  

The person can be living or not. We just want to celebrate their story. 

Our new Great Stories page is a time capsule of positive stories from our community.

Now it’s time for you to do your part. Submit a short summary of the person and the story you think we should highlight. Give us your name and contact information, as well as the contact for the person you want us to write about, or the best person to contact that can tell their story.

We will take care of the rest. 

Submit a "Great Story" here

(Sorry, we aren’t looking for people who do great things as part of their paid job/employment. They are great too, it just doesn’t fit for this section.)
