April fools!

The Prince Rupert Daily News still tries to have a sense of humour. From the front page of their April 1 edition, a funny story that didn't make it onto, for some reason:

Port Ed potential Disney North?

Eager to cash in on the cruise ship-fuelled tourist boom set to ignite on North Coast, confidential sources say the Disney Corporation is eyeing Port Edward for a "modest-sized" Canadian theme park....

It ends with a local mayor being quoted as saying "Sounds like an April Fools joke to me."
