List of city employees who made more than 100 thousand dollars have been released. 224 people made the sunshine list this year with City Manager Tim Commisso topping the list with a 2011 salary of just under 219 thousand dollars. There was over 100 more people on the list in 2011 compared to 2010 because of the new contract for Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue. The contract awarded a number of long time firefighters with back pay. Firefighters made up almost 150 of the people on the list.
There's a Thunder Bay connection to the newly appointed President of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. Glenn Nolan who is the Aboriginal Liason Officer with Noront Resources is the new head of the organization. Nolan works out of Thunder Bay.
