Mayor Keith Hobbs is in Toronto today talking with the Toronto Transit Commission's Karen Stintz. Thunder Bay's Mayor plans to tell the TTC Chair thank you for listening to the City's concerns over the Bombardier light rail vehicle contract with Toronto. He's also taking part in an International mining conference with Mining Services Manager John Mason.
The City and Fort William First Nation are teaming up to create an action plan on how to take advantage of the Ring of Fire. The plan encompasses the community's need for more industrial land, better infrastructure, and a workforce for future mining projects. Councillor Joe Virdiramo is defending their joint meeting with cabinet ministers at the Good Roads Conference saying money will eventually flow. Virdiramo feels they had the Cabinet Ministers' ears and funding will eventually come to help with the Ring of Fire project.
