Wiarton Willie lets everyone know – it’s going to be an early Spring!

This morning, February 2nd, at precisely 8:07 a.m., as hundreds of people gathered in Wiarton, Willie the albino groundhog made his annual weather prognostication.

Mayor Kirkland, after studying and becoming fluent in ‘groudhogeze’, listened carefully as Wiarton Willie gave him the news.

After discussion with his shadow cabinet, the Mayor announced to the waiting crowd that Willie had not seen his shadow and, therefore, … it’s to be an early Spring!




Bruce Power was once again Platinum Sponsor of the event.  “This is a great family event,” said James Scongack, Bruce Power’s Chief Development Officer & Vice-president Operations.  “We are really proud to be a sponsor and are already looking forward to next year.”
