More than 82,000 people live in the 81 square miles of Niagara Falls, Ontario nestled right on the Canadian/U.S. Border. Nearly twenty of them recently volunteered to film some of the points of pride of their hometown. The result is OUR TOWN: NIAGARA FALLS CANADA, WNED’s 16th community “video scrapbook” production.
