Calgary Police and EMS faced off Tuesday, in an effort to out-build one another in the first ever “canstruction” competition.
The event is a part of Husky’s Help the Hungry Week, with all food donated going to the Calgary Food Bank.
Using canned food, Kraft Dinner and Triscuits, the teams built their structures — a Star of Life, an ambulance and replica of the Foothills Hospital, with helicopter pad for the EMS team; and a Mothers Against Drunk Driving mural with their ribbon for the CPS.
“Right down to every row as a sequence of what colour cans to use, it’s more an in-depth thing than people think,” said Const. Geoff Wilson with the CPS team.
Both teams had a great time participating, they said, but in the end it was the CPS team that won the coveted “Hunger Hero” trophy — by a point and a half.
