THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Canadian Lakehead Exhibition is reacting to some online chatter over first a post on Facebook that the 2022 CLE has been cancelled.
The Canadian Lakehead Exhibition is NOT CANCELLED. The online post was apparently started as a joke and has gone viral across Thunder Bay and Northern Ontario.
Next the CLE has faced some uncertainty over a TSSA strike.
The CLE states, “There’s been a lot of concern about the safety of the rides and ride inspectors. I have been informed by the owners of Select and Canuck Shows that yes, they will be inspected.
“Here are a few of the details you should know:
- The Ontario TSSA (The Technical Standards and Safety Association) UNION is on strike
- These rides have recently been inspected by the Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba associations which all of their reports goes to the TSSA.
- The mechanics for these rides are all licensed by the TSSA and have to keep those licenses current.
- The two main head TSSA officials, which are not part of the Union, are flying in from Toronto themselves on Monday to inspect the rides.
