Calling all Paul Bunyans on June 14 2014  10am- 6 pm to the Ontario Lumberjack Championships held in Brechin Ontario. Whether the lumberjack ( or Jill ) is local or not, the crowds in Brechin love to see the participants compete in over a dozen different categories for cash prizes, including 3 different chopping disciplines, the crosscut event,pole climb,the axe throw (a crowd favourite) and the ever -poplar " Water Boil Brechin " , where the lumberjacks get a chuck of cedar, a can with soapy water, an axe and matches. The first one to get the water to boil wins. With its beginnings in 2012 this world- class event is televised across the country on TSN and features professional lumberjacks from all over Canada and United States.
