Portage la Prairie, MB –
Too afraid of sharts to go into the water?
The City of Portage la Prairie and local, hit TV station CIPP-TV are teaming up to present a week-long marathon of programming documenting a frightening phenomenon, the shart.
Prevalent in the region, sharts are a terrifying and all too common problem for Portagers. Media juggernaut, CIPP-TV and the City of Portage are hoping to exploit this regional problem for ratings and tourism gains.
Production crews have been working for months to create a week’s worth of programming dedicated to telling the story of the shart.
Often misunderstood and feared, the shart first appeared thousands of years ago and has evolved and thrived in the Central Plains area. Although they should be respected the reality is you are more likely to be seriously harmed by a mosquito than a shart.
Here is a list of these can’t miss episodes airing this week.
- “Shart Lair” – see where sharts live.
- “Sharts of Darkness” – some say they are a mere myth while others believe the largest and most impressive sharts live hidden in the dark and only come out at night while we sleep.
