Thunder Bay City Council is throwing it's support behind a new transportation plan. The plan requires 150-thousand dollars and when implemented would come out of the 2012 capital budget. Councillor Andrew Foulds didn't see the point for another plan when they already have a transit plan and an active transportation plan. Consultant Jim Gough defended the plan at Monday night's City Council meeting. The Travel Smart Plan encourages people to use healthier less costly forms of travel like buses, and car pooling.
Thunder Bay wants to be more welcoming to immigrants, and that's why they're holding an all day conference on the issue. Spokesperson Michelle Lander says they'll talk about how they can do better. The forum takes place Tuesday at the Victoria Inn.
