Results of the survey

Newfoundland last hosted the Brier in 1972 but a story on the front page of The Weekend Telegram tells how St. John’s is now vying to host the event again for the 2017 Canadian men’s curling championship. What do you think?

  • 76% It would be amazing to see the Brier come to Newfoundland once again!
  • 8% I don’t think we have the venue or the following to really be able to host the country’s marquee curling event.
  • 14% Stones, house, skips, sweeping, whatever. I don’t follow curling and couldn’t care less.
