Wawa Goose, Wawa, Ontario, 2010
There’s this giant metal goose in Wawa, Ontario, which is in fact the town’s major claim to fame, as said goose is apparently famous in Canada (you’ll just have to take my word on this one). Theoreticallly, the goose commemorates the completion of the Trans-Canada highway, but the real reason behind it was to have some big thing to actually make tourists care to come to Wawa. It has worked–somewhat. THe goose is really on the edge of Wawa, so you don’t need to go into town to visit it, and I am not sure what percentage do or don’t. But there it is: big goose in Wawa–stop by if you’re in the neighbourhood. You can even donate for the replacement, as this goose is apparently cooked. . .
