(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The south side downtown core has experienced a drop in noticeable loitering and such near Brodie and Victoria recently.
This past weekend the area celebrated by having a social gathering called “South Side Vibe”, which our local mainstream media appeared to snub except the Chronicle Journal and NNL. I didn’t notice any other media cover it.
The event was right across the street from CBC Thunder Bay. I didn’t notice if they covered it.
Anyways, reality is there are a number of problem areas still needing to be address outside of Brodie and Victoria. We can discuss the obvious “Odd Fellows” or perhaps the Royal Eddy, Kam River Park or the tenants in the area on the second floor across May from Royal Eddy.
The area has improved substantially recently. Efforts spearheaded by local entrepreneur and social activist Lori Paras appears to be making headway.
