SYDNEY — Today at Cen­tre 200, the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity will be launch­ing a bid to host the 2019 Scotties Tour­na­ment of Hearts curl­ing cham­pi­onship.

The coun­cil had passed a mo­tion to con­trib­ute $150,000 to bring the na­tional women’s curl­ing cham­pi­onship to Sydney.

Mayor Ce­cil Clarke will be at the of­fi­cial launch to an­nounce the bid to the me­dia.

In 2016, there was an un­suc­cess­ful bid for the Sydney Curl­ing Club to host the Scotties.
