During a special meeting held Wednesday evening, a motion was presented to liquidate the corporation with 42 members participating in the meeting votng in favour of the motion, four members voting against, and five abstaining.

A million dollars in debt?  How in the hell does a place like that ring up a million dollars in debt?

the Finlandia Association said it owed $290,000 RBC but that was only a fraction of the money the association owed. Another $480,000 was owed to the Hoito Restaurant for incurred expenses since 2015.

The Association owes $160,000 to Thunder Bay Ventures and $33,000 in taxes to the City of Thunder Bay. The Hoiti itself is carrying about $300,000 in debt.

Oh…that’s how they got a million dollars in debt. It looks like the Finlandia Association thought they were the Federal or Provincial government where debt means nothing.

    Someone’s had their head in the sand for many years to have accumulated such debt. Reminds me of the city of Thunder Bay. Debt means nothing until it does.
