Some competitive co-operation took place during the annual Salmon Cook-off at the National Historic Site Saturday July 19.

Members from the District of Fort St. James team broke away and formed another team after noticing two teams had backed out last minute and one team didn’t show up at all.

“It shows the spirit of a small town but we encourage them to loose,” joked Joan Burdeniuk, city councillor on the District of Fort St. James team. “But you know, there is always growth in loosing.”

There were ultimately four teams that fought for the title of Best Salmon Chef in New Caledonia.

“It was last minute so we mixed and matched everything,” said Harjit Birdi, representing The Final Frontier.

At noon everyone gathered around to taste each of the delegates salmon. Each team proved to have a unique way of cooking fish. After everyone voted the winner was revealed to be The District of Fort St. James who took home the top prize of a smelly fish and box of office supplies.

“We don’t just sling it we bring it,” said Emily Colombo, representative of The Salmon Slingers.
