Something more on the embarrassing state of the city’s soccer fields covered in a previous post.
The Thunder Bay Chill is a professional soccer team (football to the purists) sooo that field would not likely qualify for the Feds nfrastructure funding…BUT
Remember back in January, our mayor mention the “replacement funding” formula used by the City of Moncton to fund its much larger and much cheaper event centre. This could be a way our tunnel vision inflicted City Hall residents could fund their $120 million wet dream project.
This is a way that our city could get funding from the senior levels of government for improvements to the Thunder Bay Chill’s home field indirectly. A money laundering scheme so to speak.
Now, all we need to do is find a project in Thunder Bay that would qualify for senior level of government funding that is not already funded by senior levels of government.
I am sure one exists….not sure where but there has to be one out there.
