More Help for Voters Seeking Candidate Information

THUNDER BAY – Interest in the Civic Election continues to climb as residents explore the views, and visions offered by both challengers and incumbents.

The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce sent a survey to mayoral, at-large and ward candidates for the Municipal Election to determine their views on a range of topics important to the business community.

“As the ‘Voice of Business’ we wanted to assist voters in their choice of those running to run our City for the next four years,” stated Harold Wilson.

The results of the survey are now available on the Chamber’s website, and can be searched by candidate, question or electoral group using the following link: www.tb-chamber.on.ca/election2010.

The questions were:

1. What strategic investment, if any, should the City make to spur on economic

development and why?

2. What specific decision of the last Council affecting the business community would you seek to overturn if elected, and why?

3. What do you think is the main issue affecting business investment in Thunder

Bay? What can Council do to improve it?

4. What experience do you bring to your role on City Council, and how will it help you make decisions?

5. What do you feel are the top three strategic advantages of Thunder Bay?

6. What do you believe the City’s role should be in securing mining related business?

7. What do you think should happen to the tax allotment previously used to pay for the hospital?

The Thunder Bay Chamber represents over 1100 businesses in Thunder Bay.
