Ch’ng proposes Thunder Bay sign on waterfront
Northwood Coun.Shelby Ch’ng wants to take a page from Toronto’s tourism book and construct a sign spelling out Thunder Bay’s name on the Northern Ontario city’s waterfront.
Ch’ng plans to present a memorandum at Monday night’s city council meeting calling for the installation of the permanent word sign, similar to ones that can be found in communities around the world, including Ontario’s capital.
“It’s great for marketing Thunder Bay and using tourists to do it,” Ch’ng said.
The second-term councillor is asking that up to $100,000 in funding be approved for the project from the unallocated portion of the municipal accommodation tax funds to cover the cost of design and installation. – tbnewswatch.com
