#LSN_Econ

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  -  October 16, 2018  (LSN) Thunder Bay’s economy has seen ebbs and flows over the course of the last 150 years.  Key to its economic development was the federal government decision to route the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Lakehead and the arrival of the transcontinental railway in the 1880s.  Indeed, without this government intervention it is unlikely Thunder Bay would have developed into a city as large as it is today.  Government action in assorted forms has been one of the pillars of Thunder Bay’s economy.

Thunder Bay, Ontario - October 7, 2018  (LSN) Prize-winning journalist Tanya Talaga (Seven Fallen Feathers) explores the legacy of cultural genocide against Indigenous peoples- in Canada and elsewhere- in her 2018 CBC Massey Lectures—All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward.
