THUNDER BAY -- The more Thunder Bay Mayor Ken Boshcoff looks at his state of the city address, the more he is tempted to change it.

What was originally scheduled for Jan. 8 has been postponed again - with Boshcoff pointing out that doing it sooner doesn’t work with budget sessions launching next week and the Ontario Winter Games getting underway on Feb. 16.

Boshcoff said that Feb. 12 was one of the dates proposed but he is leaning more towards March 5 just so that it doesn’t conflict with budget ratification night.

“We don't know when that state of the city address could be, it could happen at 11:30 pm. I'm in favour of actually calling a special meeting for this. There are a lot of good things happening in the city. Plus I will have a lot of rather positive things to say about our direction.”

Boshcoff titled the address “All roads lead to Thunder Bay,” stating that it emphasizes the city's strategic location and the vast opportunities it offers.
