Contest celebrates start of Air Canada Rouge non-stop flight service to Toronto.

A lucky woman from Ladysmith made her pre-flight check-in, so to speak, to be in the bleachers for a baseball game in Toronto.

Sue Taylor, stopped in at Nanaimo Airport Thursday morning where she was presented with a prize package she won in the Homerun in Toronto Contest, held in June to celebrate the start of non-stop flights from Nanaimo to Toronto aboard Air Canada Rouge.

Taylor’s prize package includes return flights for two from Nanaimo Airport to Toronto Pearson Airport, plus three night’s accommodations and tow tickets to a Blue Jays baseball game.
