Where we're going in Season 6 of Still Standing
Jonny Harris and the Still Standing crew truck from coast to coast to coast in their ongoing small-town tour of this big country to celebrate the places and the people that are holding on, no matter what.
Starting Tuesday, October 6, we kick-off our cross-country tour on Pelee Island, Ont. From there we carry on to nine more awe-inspiring communities across Canada. Check out the list below for all of the towns we're visiting in Season 6.
Tune in at 8/8:30 NT or watch on CBC Gem.

TUES, DEC. 8 (8/8:30 NT) | When oil and gas was struck elsewhere, Turner Valley was left with not much more than abandoned wells and an out-of-date processing plant. But a fresh new crop of entrepreneurs is emerging from the ashes and redefining this former boomtown.
