TRURO – The Town of Truro has been featured in a national magazine as one of the most stunning places in the country.

The Readers Digest’s website shows the results of a recent contest in which 13 places where recognized as the most ‘stunning Canadian places you never knew existed.’

Described on the magazine’s website as “little-known towns and true Canadian gems,” people submitted places in the Canada's Most Interesting Towns Contest.

Truro was one of the places submitted. The website’s writeup about the town points to the benefits of Victoria Park, the wooden (tree) sculptures throughout town and a variety of restaurants as highlights.

It wasn’t confirmed who submitted the town for consideration. However, Truro Mayor Bill Mills said he wasn’t surprised Truro was included.

“It’s no surprise. The local people don’t look at us the way others do. (Visitors) see the park, the architecture, the new hospital, a vibrant downtown and appreciate it,” said Mills.

“We have a vibrant community with people who want to do things. We have a lot to offer and we need to be more optimistic as to what we have to offer.”

Also on the list was Parrsboro, boasting of its ocean view, high tides and fossil discoveries.

Dame, Que. was ultimately chosen as the winner of the contest. Other submissions included Hampton, N.B., Fort Nelson, B.C., and Swan River, Man.

    ....."The local people don’t look at us the way others do"...I agree, Mayor Mills, most of the locals think the place is more towards stunned than stunning.....I hope those who visit based on this article or contest won't be stunned the wrong way ....
