There’s no shortage of good things happening here in Thompson if you know where to look.
Mayor Colleen Smook recently spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that there were three major conferences in Thompson this week, including two that would normally take place down south.
“MKO had a human trafficking and exploitation conference at the Ma-Mo-We-Tak centre with about 150 people in attendance. Then we had one at St Joseph’s Ukrainian hall that was on education for the north; it was a small but robust group in attendance for that. Then even in the TRCC there was a three-day conference on waste management and recycling. This is the second year they’ve actually held that in Thompson and again you’ve got about 150 people from all the outlying communities”
Mayor Smook said that with the at least temporary break from the deep freeze that the spirit of Thompson is starting to come through.
She added that everyone is “all gung-ho about making Thompson a great place once again.”
