The winner gets a block of tickets to a taping of This Hour Has 22 Minutes...and a certified Stephanie Domet bobblehead! Tune in to hear all about it, and click here to participate.

Obscured Crosswalks

Posted by Katy Parsons

We want you to send in your photographs of hard to spot crosswalks, ones that may be obscured by trees, signs and other stuff. Take a picture with your smart phone or digital camera. Email it to us at mainhfx@cbc.ca. Be sure to tell us in your email where the crosswalk is located. Include your name and where you're from, and we'll post your pics!
