Ontario's Cory Heggestad won the 2012 Canadian mixed curling championship Saturday with a 10-3 win over Nova Scotia's Brent MacDougall in the final.

Heggestad and teammates Heather Graham, Greg Balsdon and Amy Mackay stole a single in the first end then grabbed two more points in the third to take a 3-1 lead.

MacDougall's draw for a single in the fourth end was light, allowing Ontario a steal of two points to lead 5-1.
