"They've decided to go to Barriere for a couple of years," said David Arduini, who heads the Winter Fair committee. "With the turmoil here (Mount Paul Centre) and no consistent place to go and use year to year, it changes everything." Arduini said the decision by the Winter Fair board was a difficult one because of its long history here and questions about viability in a smaller community. Attendance at the fair has been strong for years but started to decline more recently when uncertainty around the future of the Mount Paul Centre location became known and facilities were constrained. There is less exhibition space than before Northern Trailer took over much of the site more than five years ago.

"Part of the problem louis vuitton watch authentication is people involved in agriculture are so busy we haven't promoted ourselves as well as we should have."
