Justin Emberley of Sioux Lookout is this year's Dad of the Year!
His children Jayden and Layla submitted his name in to show their appreciation for their father:
"Our dad Justin is the Dad of the Year because he works hard to make sure we have everything we need. He makes sure to take us out for fun things when he’s off. He is the best because he always gives to us and makes sure our days are always filled with happiness. Even when he’s tired he still pulls it together to make sure we have a great day. He has never won anything in his life and so deserves to win Dad of the Year. Even if he doesn’t win I already know that my dad Justin is the Dad of the Year and my hero. Submitted by Jayden and Layla Emberley (children of “Dad of the Year”)"
"I didn't think they would submit my name! My kids are so great and thoughtful. Anyone who has ever met them will tell you they're awesome children," Dad of the Year said when we gave him a call this morning.
With over 3,600 votes, Justin has won a Broil King Regal 400 Pellet Grill, with three 20 lb bags of pellets and Margarita 3 Piece Orange Sling Bistro Set from McMunn and Yates Building Supplies just in time for Father's Day!
Thank you to everyone who submitted their dad for Dad of the Year and to all who took the time to vote!
