Anyone who lives in or near Barrie knows the answer to "Why Barrie?"
Yet sometimes we're still able to rediscover the hidden gems that are scattered throughout it: new places to dine, new places to shop, and little bits of local history that we had no idea about.
We love to call Barrie our home, and there's little secret as to why.
As we shortly roll in to 2018, we're going to share with you the local history of our community, our neighbourhoods, as well as the treasures that Barrie has lost.
In the meantime, we've pulled a video from our own archives from 2011 where Todd had the opportunity to sit with DailyWebTV and discuss why Barrie is so important.
We'd love to hear why you love Barrie! Let us know in the comments section below.
