Avoid Thunder Bay unless you're touring. The whole city is run on nepotism and cronyism, the city council and mayor haven't a clue on how to run the city, the economy is in the toilet, and frankly, these are all reasons why people want to move out of the city.

I've lived here all my life, and I can tell you that as a 26-year old with a background in computer animation and an English degree, there is NOTHING here for me. The people with the money don't want to see new industries come in and create competition and new jobs, the jobs that are here are for those who graduate high school and don't want to do anything else to further their education, and frankly, the paper mill is whistling past the graveyard, employing a small fraction of what it once could.

It's sad, but when you realize how incredibly stubborn and stupid the city has been in terms of bringing in new jobs or improvements, you honestly get angry and stop caring, altogether. Why? Because people in the city have been doing it for years. Soon, the city will turn into another Elliot Lake or a gigantic reserve for the First Nations. Everyone who graduates from the medical school here wants to go somewhere else for work because of the aging population and political games. Same with the university and college. What good is staying when all the answers you get while trying to get a job involve call centres, nursing and truck driving?
