Monopoly snub unthinkable

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Rich Uncle Pennybags can blow it out his top hat.

He’s the cartoon-character mascot of the Monopoly board game. Despite his grandfatherly image – with that Wilford Brimley mustache, sophisticated walking stick and the same tuxedo he has been wearing for nearly a century – Pennybags just snubbed Niagara Falls in the most unthinkable way.

Niagara Falls – probably one of the most identifiable Canadian icons – was left out of the newest Canadian version of the board game. Adding insult to injury, it got passed over in favour of oh-so-popular and ever-famous Canadian locales like Sarnia, Ont., and Saint-Jean-Sur-Richilieu, Que.
