CBC NEWS A group in Miramichi raising money for a new "eco-centre" is drawing fire for raffling off a Hummer one of the biggest gas-guzzling SUVs you can buy.

The Rotary Club of Chatham says its "Hum-Dinger" of a prize is just what it needs to raise $100,000 for the proposed development in French Fort Cove.

The Sierra Club was equally perplexed that the Rotary Club would give away a Hummer in a contest aimed at promoting environmental conservation.
