Last weekend, sponsors of the Deh Gah Dog Mushers race gave the event a kick start in more ways than one.

The annual event is a key attraction during the holiday season and creates an opportunity to bring people and investment into the community. The Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment was pleased to provide support for the race, for the fifth year.

The event organizers invite each sponsor to take part – providing them with three dogs on a timed 3-mile track. This year, ITI’s Deputy Minister Tom Jensen, took the reins for the first time. Organizer Danny Beaulieu says it’s a great way to pack a lot of learning into a short time.
