Welch Company Honoured

Parks Canada is celebrating the historical significance of Thunder Bay's railroad contracting firm, Welch Company Limited.  Spokesperson Nancy Saunders says a plaque will be placed outside the Algoma Street Italian Cultural Centre.  The plaque tells the story of the Welch Company founders the Veltri brothers who played a big role in getting Italians to immigrate to Canada.
