TbaytelTHUNDER BAY – Moving forward into local political coverage, Thunder Bay City Council meetings will have another venue shortly for engaging residents. Tbaytel is pleased to offer live broadcasts of Thunder Bay City Council meetings on Tbaytel Digital TV. Tbaytel first began airing live City Council meeting coverage in December 2014 with the inaugural meeting of Thunder Bay’s newly elected City Council.

“Wherever possible, we try to offer relevant local programming on Tbaytel Digital TV that we know will add value for our customers,” says Tbaytel president and CEO Dan Topatigh. “Council meetings are a topic of interest for many Tbaytel customers and we are very excited to now be adding live Thunder Bay City Council meetings to our lineup of local content offerings.”

Thunder Bay City Council meetings take place Monday evenings starting at 6:30 p.m. and Tbaytel Digital TV customers can follow broadcasts of meeting discussion and agenda items by watching live each week on channel 110.

“By following City Council coverage and watching the live discussion each week, citizens of Thunder Bay can stay informed and become engaged in the civic landscape of our city,” says City of Thunder Bay clerk John Hannam. “One of the best ways to ensure Thunder Bay City Council is maintaining a high level of accountability and transparency is to communicate directly with the community and by broadcasting in real time, we are bringing the discussion to the people of Thunder Bay in a very accessible way.”
