The Thompson Local News

There is renewed interest from outside of the City when it comes to investing in Thompson.


Thompson 2020 held an investors breakfast in Winnipeg last week, which was aimed at attracting potential investors to Thompson. Those in attendance came from different fields including legal, banking and the government.


Mayor Dennis Fenske spoke to Arctic Radio News, and said that talks at the breakfast from Thompson 2020’s Harold Smith and Vale’s Mark Scott clearly outlined plans that have been in place since 2010 when it comes to changes to Vale’s presence here in the north.   


He added that Thompson 2020 and City of Thompson officials heard good things in exit comments from those in attendance.


Fenske took the opportunity to again express his disappointment in both Minister Pedersen and local MLA Kelly Bindle, asking what that the Mining Community Reserve Fund is for if Thompson doesn’t qualify following Birchtree being put on care and maintenance in addition to the 700 jobs lost.
