Wrong wrong wrong.  The eniw and fruit growing capital of Canada is right
here in Niagara.  We produce about 8 times the volume of the Okanagan, have
about a similar ratio of gold medals, and have a huge wine tourist industry,
kind of like a "Napa North".

In fact, Niagara is known as the "Ice eniw capital of the world".
