Business community is optimistic

Small businesses in Thunder Bay are feeling pretty secure this year.  That's one of the themes in the annual Thunder Bay Ventures Survey.  Chamber of Commerce President Harold Wilson says the results are encouraging.  The Survey shows 51 percent of businesses are planning on hiring new employees this year.  Also almost 70 percent of respondents feel the city's economy is moving in a positive direction and just over 80 percent of respondents say they feel secure about their future.
