Another Bear in the City

 The MNR is hoping there won't be too many more bears wandering the busy streets of the city. Thunder Bay police received several calls yesterday about a large black bear walking in the Simspon Street and May Street area. This was the second bear that MNR officials tranquilized this Long Weekend. Police are reminding the public that these bears can be dangerous and aggressive when provoked.

The ceremony will start at 10 today at City Hall with Mayor Keith Hobbs and representatives from the Canadian Merchant Navy Veterans Association.
