The City of Prince Rupert is pulling out all the stops as it tries to win a $100,000 competition.
The McKay Street Park entry is currently in the lead out of ten finalists in the province-wide BCAA Play Here contest, but not by much according to mayor Lee Brain.
With voting set to end at midnight Sunday, June 18th, Brain is urging everyone to use their allowable four votes a day to solidify the city’s entry.
The McKay Street Park is adjacent to the largest subsidized housing complex in Prince Rupert which is home to many young families.
Brain says the space is considered dangerous by many residents and has been used by drug users during the night.
Votes for the McKay Street park can be cast here.
