The World’s Biggest Thing

Quite possibly one of the best (although there are lots to pick from) episodes of Corner Gas is the one where they try to come up with a trademark ‘World’s Biggest Something’ for Dog River.

It got me thinking it might be fun to do a blog series on ‘big’ town symbols from the prairies, and maybe even across Canada.

One thing I’ve noticed in the time I’ve been blogging is that posts with just a little bit of a personal touch really go over well. So, if there’s a big gopher, chicken, dog, combine or whatever at the turnoff to your town, it would be great to hear from you!  Pictures would be most appreciated, and a little written blurb along with them would be even better.

Reader’s contributions can be emailed to me at

Thanking you in advance!

To kick things off, here’s a youtube link to the episode of Corner Gas: World’s Biggest Thing.  Enjoy!
