Campbell River resident wins kayak in Readers’ Choice draw

A Campbell River resident plans to take up kayaking after winning a draw as part of the Readers’ Choice Awards.

June Livingston was in disbelief when she learned that she’d won the prize.

“I can’t believe it still,” she said. “I was shocked actually, I was quite surprised.”

Livingston picked up the kayak on Tuesday at Canadian Tire. She said she’s looking forward to trying it out.

“I’ve never kayaked,” she said. “I bought my grandson a little kayak from here so [we’re] going to try it together in the summer.”

In the meantime, her son-in-law is planning to take the boat out.

Livingston won the vessel – a 12-foot Pelican Vanquish 120x worth about $600 – after nominating her favorite businesses as part in the Readers’ Choice Awards.

The prize was provided by the Mirror and Canadian Tire.
