Smiths Falls - The municipal government of Smiths Falls has decided to sell their town on Kijiji, an online classifieds website, in attempt to unload their plagued town from further deterioration.
The simple, but informative ad informs buyers it has a number of amenities that make it a considerable value at the asking price of $2,800. The ad explains the price includes all parking, businesses (operating or not) and the prestige of being on the World Heritage Designated Rideau Canal System. The town also boats a Zellers, Country Time coffee shop and a number of fuel refilling stations.
Plagued by factory closures, a failing economy, dilapidated homes and now a municipal water problem, town council has unanimously voted to place an ad on the cost-efficient, but well viewed Kijiji classifieds. Trades for a mid-sixties muscle car or cottage are being considered. At the time, the ad had been viewed 238 times. Smiths Falls Mayor, Lloyd Benson was unavailable for comment.
