I just wanted to say a big thank you to whomever wrote this article on here. My husband was very proud to win the Hill Climb this year and we were extremely disappointed when Wednesday's paper came out with the headline that someone else had won the Hill climb! For the second year in a row a Kitimatian has kept the trophy here and I really didn't think that it would have been that hard to get the story straight. I personally think that my husband deserves an apology and that it should be corrected in the next paper. At least whomever writes for the Kitimat Daily knows how to get a story straight and reports them properly! Thank you again for getting it right :)
