Press Release: Municipal Candidates Respond to City of Opportunity Platform

THUNDER BAY, ON, October 3, 2018

THUNDER BAY, October 3, 2018: The City of Opportunity platform, prepared by the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, outlines three pillars that are the foundation of a strong, resilient city.  By adopting the pillars of visionary leadership, economic opportunity, and quality of life and implementing the 10 recommended actions, our next Council can build a City of Opportunity for everyone. Candidate responses to the City of Opportunity survey are now available online at www.tbchamber.ca/SayYes.

Charla Robinson, President of the Chamber says, “Over the past 5 weeks, we have reached out to Candidates to educate them about our City of Opportunity platform and to ask them to ‘say yes’ to our recommendations.  We hope that the sharing of candidate responses will be helpful to voters as they prepare for Election Day.”

Disclaimer: The survey responses have been supplied by the candidates themselves and in no way constitute the endorsement of any candidate by the Chamber of Commerce.
