Nanaimo's Better of the Metropolis winners and runners-up revealed – Nanaimo Information Bulletin – Nanaimo Bulletin


Nanaimo’s received election fever as of late. Properly, guess what? The votes are in – the Better of the Metropolis votes, that’s.

That is our biggest-ever Better of the Metropolis survey, with greater than 150 classes, together with roughly a dozen new classes this 12 months. We requested Nanaimo Information Bulletin readers to take part in our on-line survey at first of the summer time, questioning about the perfect companies, issues to do and sights to see. We’re grateful that we acquired tens of hundreds of votes, as a result of such excessive ‘voter turnout’ logically makes the survey extra consultant, and hopefully, extra helpful to Better of the Metropolis readers. In case your favorite enterprise didn’t win this 12 months, please hold them in thoughts subsequent summer time and encourage family and friends to get out the vote.

Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up. You all contribute to creating Nanaimo the perfect.
