Canada 150

Canada’s 150

Published On February 28, 2017 | By Blackburn Radio | Homepage Slider

2017 marks Canada’s Sesquicentennial, aka: Canada’s 150th Birthday!

To mark this historic occasion CHOK and Lambton Kia have teamed up and put the official Canadian Kia Soul 150 cruiser on the road. This bright red Kia Soul will travel around Sarnia-Lambton to help promote Canada and make stops at your events.

The Canadian Kia Soul 150 Cruiser will also be handing out prizes to local merchants and residents that are showing their Canadian pride. Put up a flag in your business or home, if we spot it, we could stop by and deliver some prizes.

If your business, organization, school, sporting team or group has an event planned, please let us know. Email your event to: [email protected]. We will do our best to attend your event and mention it on the radio.

The Canadian Kia Soul 150 Cruiser, brought to you by Lambton Kia, 95 Indian Road South, Sarnia, (519) 464-4022 and CHOK!
