Everything Yellowknife

Yellowknife on Monopoly?

If you didn’t hear on the radio yesterday or on Facebook, Yellowknife has a chance to be on the new Canadian Monopoly. A new version of Monopoly compiled of Canadian Cities. Hasbro has decided to hand the decision making of which Cities will be on the board over the residents themselves. They have set up the website: www.MonopolyVote.ca, where you can login and vote for the cities you want to see on the board. Yellowknife is up against 64 other cities across Canada for a place on the board.

My only concern, because I’m am being competitive here, is how can Yellowknife, a City of 20k, compete with the majority of other Cities that have at least double that. I suppose that is where we all come in. We need to vote daily and vote often.

To vote it is very simple. Go to www.MonopolyVote.ca and click “Log In” to sign up for an account. Once you have done that click “Vote for a City” and choose Yellowknife from the right side of the page. Click “Ok” and then vote. That is it, and Yellowknife will be one vote closer to getting on to that board.

There is now a Facebook page for Monopoly Yellowknife. Become a fan today.
