THUNDER BAY – The issue of the Event Centre in Thunder Bay has been an issue of great debate recently.

Lakehead University students are launching an online survey to gauge support in the community for the Event Centre.

Take the Survey: http://surveymonkey.com/s/LUMS

The Tourism and Recreation Economics class, in the School of Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism, at Lakehead University is conducting a study on the perceptions of Thunder Bay residents towards a proposed events centre, the Multiplex, to be built in the downtown Port Arthur area near the waterfront. We are inviting you to participate in this study. Public awareness and insights are important, and it is important that your thoughts towards the planning and development of a Multiplex centre are known before major decisions are made. The information you provide will be used by the Class to better understand economic theories and planning processes related to the Multiplex development in Thunder Bay.
