The Thompson Local News


The City of Thompson will be a Goldeye Club level sponsor at that 2017 Manitoba Mining and Minerals Convention.

 

The sponsorship, which will cost the City $500, was passed by resolution at City Council last week. The final vote count was six to three, with Deputy Mayor Valentino, Councillor Wong and Councillor Matechuk voting in opposition

 

Deputy Mayor Kathy Valentino spoke up in opposition to the resolution before the vote, saying that they should have reduced the amount of the sponsorship down to the minimum $250, with the extra money going towards personnel or other expenses related to the conference.

 

Councillor Judy Kolada voted in favour of the sponsorship, saying that the City should be going a step further with a booth at the event. She said that since there is both a communications and economic development officer in place, the City should start planning for some form of presence at the conference. She said that in past years they (the City) has scrambled at the last minute to put something together, and that she thinks that should be avoided this time around with the current situation facing the city with regards to Vale.

 

Councillor Penny Byer also spoke up in favour of the resolution and echoed what Kolada had said, saying that the City needs to determine their strategy for the convention in the near future. Byer added that sponsoring the event has been the standard practice for the City of Thompson in recent history.

 

Councillor Colleen Smook also spoke in support of the resolution, saying that it is always a good thing when the City is on display at events like this.

 

The 2017 Manitoba Mining and Mineral Convention takes place November 15th through the 17th at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg.
